    Re: thesis

    "thesis" denotes higher academic standards. When you write a thesis, you dig deeper than when you write an essay.

    Thank you
    but what I know is: a thesis is only one sentence which is called thesis statement and it is written at the end of the introduction of the essay.

    Am I right?

    Obviously you are referring to a lesser-known definition of the word.

    Cambridge: the main idea, opinion or theory of a person, group, piece of writing or speech. Their main thesis was that war was inevitable.

    M-W: a proposition to be proved or one advanced without proof

    The thesis could be called the topic sentence of your essay. It is a statement that gives an overview of the argument that you are going to make. The end of the introduction is one place it can go.

    Essay:
    introduction: last sentence is called the thesis statement.
    first body paragraph:first sentence is called a topic sentence.
    second body paragraph: first sentence is called a topic sentence.
    third body paragraph: first sentence is called a topic sentence.
    conclusion.

    This what I mean.
