    Well, I don't know as far as sentence starters, but I found that all of them except describe had to be written quite formally, so try writing in a formal way as practice. Describe on the other hand you could be quite playful with - just pack in lots of adjectives :p:

    BBC Bitesize is brilliant for this.

    It explains exactly what to do for each type of essay.

    I could write it all now but there's no point.
