I usually do an intro and then 4 body paragraphs and idk whether to do a conclusion

Can I ask what you write in your intro? Also I don't think you really can do a conclusion

U can do a conclusion! I always just sum up my body paragraphs in the conclusion like any normal essay! I do an intro, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion - just like any normal essay!

So you're saying to do a conclusion?

In my intro I write the contention, name of article, where it was published and the date. I also address any opposing letters or articles (if there are any)

I have been an English teacher for 20 years and you actually shouldn't write a conclusion in a language analysis. There is no need to summarise your arguments in a concluding paragraph as you are simply analysing the article written. In terms of whether you should write an intro, some teachers say yes and others say no. I think if you have time then you should as it is a nice way to open. However your body paragraphs are far more important so if you need to skip the intro in order to ace the body paragraphs, then do so!

wow okay thank you so much! I'm still a bit confused as to how many body paragraphs to write... 3 or 4?

It depends on the article. If it is a long article and you have a lot you want to analyse then opt for 4 paagaphs but if it is shorter you may only be able to do 3. There is no right or wrong way to do it :)
