Oxford-Hachette French Dictionary

General advice on writing in French

The presentation of French is very similar to that of English. Just bear in mind that the paragraphs should stand out well on the page. In the case of an essay, they should all be about the same length (except for the introduction and the conclusion). Starting a new paragraph is not done in an arbitrary way, but only when moving on to a new idea. It is often advised to develop only one idea per paragraph.
