Students' Comparison or Contrast Essays - Models

The Comparison or Contrast essays below are all written by former students both in the US and Mexico. I'd like to give a hearty "thanks" to these students, first, for being such great students, second, for writing excellent essays and, third, for allowing me to publish them here.

I must comment about the first essay on this page, Cows and Whales, which was by a student from Japan. My initial reaction was a questioning What?, but when I read the essay, I could see a cultural aspect of Japan that I had not seen before, and then I asked myself, "Why not consider a contrast between cows and whales?" It's eye-opening to see the world through the eyes of another culture. I like the essays on this page!




  1. Cows and Whales by Kenji
  2. Radiohead From The Bends to Hail to the Thief
  3. Vacationing in the City or at the Beach
  4. Eating Fresh Foods or Canned Foods
  5. Backpacking or Staying in Hotels
  6. Industrial Engineer or Administrator
  7. Aerobic Training verses Anaerobic Training
  8. Stick Shift or Automatic
  9. Two Great Mexican Cities, Querétaro and San Miguel
  10. Vacationing at the Beach or in the Mountains



Please note that these essays are organized. In each case, the writer lined up his/her main points and supporting details and presented them clearly and concisely. Note, too, that some essays contain point-by-point organization while other essays contain block organization.
