    Begin a sentence with "No matter what...."

    I was wondering if you can begin a sentence with "no matter what". Is it ok, or how could we make it sound more academic ?


    "No matter what kind of text you are supposed to write be it a comment, an argumentative essay, an analysis of a literary text, a characterisation etc. you should always outline the structure of your text BEFORE starting to write."

    Thank you.
    Regards

    Re: Begin a sentence with "No matter what...."

    I think it's fine. You could also say "Regardless of..."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
