Structuring your paragraphs
Example:
While you might think that
a hippopotamus is a difficult animal to keep as a pet, actually, it’s not too bad.

In my opinion
, you can ask for no better pet than a hippo.

surrounding your chosen topic.
Then you can argue against these.

your point
across more strongly.
Pick your own animal – maybe a crocodile, elephant or lion - and argue that you should be allowed to keep it as a pet.
DUCK!
SQUASH!
STAMP!
