SUMMARY SKILLS There are 4 basic skills involved in writing a summary.. 1.

Read questions carefully - get a general idea of it 2. Identifying main ideas - turn the instruction into a question - locate at least 5 main points 3. Condensing the text - use the least number of words - paraphrase without losing the original meaning - leave out unnecessary details - use your own words or sentence structures - use generic words 4. Maintaining cohesion - link all your points well - use connectors (in addition, besides, furthermore...) - use linkers (although, however, in contrast...) - make the points flow smoothly
