What I didn't realize was that learning to swim would also make me a more confident person. Narrative Essay Brief Description Four different types of essays:
Exposition: gives information about various topics to the reader.
Description: describes in detail characteristics and traits.
Argument: Convince the reader by demonstrating the truth or falsity of a topic.
Narrative: Tells a story, usually from one persons view point.
A narrative uses all these elements in a story. Brief Description Explain why you would write about this person, event or object.
What are you trying to show purpose for?` New situations always make me a bit nervous, and my first swimming lesson was no exception. After I changed into my bathing suit in the locker room, I stood timidly by the side of the pool waiting for the teacher and other students to show up. After a couple of minutes the teacher came over. She smiled and introduced herself, and two more students joined us. Although they were both older than me, they didn't seem to be embarrassed about not knowing how to swim. I began to feel more at ease.” Continued.
