Esai dalam bahasa Inggris jika dirunut berdasarkan struktur sebenanya tidak jauh berbeda dengan esai yang

kita temukan di dalam bahasa Indonesia. Esai berbahasa Inggris, terutama yang membahas tentang membandingkan perbedaan atau persamaan suatu tempat atau benda memiliki dua struktur dalam proses penulisannya. Isi dari tulisan biasanya memfokuskan pada menjelaskan kualitas objek atau ide dengan membahas persamaan dan perbedaann kemudian dibandingkan dengan objek lain yang berbeda pula. Dalam proses penulisannya, esai perbandingn bisa disusun dalam dua metode yang berbeda yaitu : 1. Dengan menyamakan dan membandingkn sejumlah masalah tiap pokok bahasan (point-by-point) Artinya, terdapat dua paragraf isi, setiap paragraf selalu disertai pokok kalimat yang jelas. Setiap paragraph isi menjelaskan satu pokok bahasan utama untuk disamakan atau dibandingkn diantara dua subjek. Dalam setiap paragraf isi, pokok kalimat menetapkan poin dari persamaan dan perbedaan antara dua subjek. Kemudian diikuti kalimat penjelas yang menyediakan dua atau tiga contoh dari subjek tersebut. Pada setiap awal paragrah harus menggunakan kata transisi / peralihan, misalnya : firstly, secondly, furthermore, dan lain sebagainya untuk menghubungkan setiap poin analisis di dalam paragraf. Contoh : I'm going to discuss firstly about Beringharjo market that is located in Yogyakarta. Beringharjo is traditional market and famous with Batik sales. It is very easy to find and there are many seller who sell Batik, not only Batik sarong but also clothes of Batik. In these places, people can also bargain for price of Batik, so people can get Batik lower price than in store. In this places, Beringharjo is more expensive because Beringharjo market is one of tourism destination in Yogyakarta. Many people from other cities buy Batik in there. They are very happy when they can get Batik from Beringharjo with bargaining price. I'm going to discuss about Klewer secondly. Klewer is also traditional market. It is located in Solo, Central Java. Based on price quality, Klewer has price cheaper than Beringharjo. Klewer becomes a center of wholesales of Batik for Batik reseller. Many reseller from other cities distribute Batik from Klewer, include most of reseller from Beringharjo. So that, price of Batik in Klewer is a distributor price and different from Beringharjo price.

2. Dengan memmfokuskan pertama kali pada persamaan kemudian kedua adalah perbedaan 2 subjek. Pada metode ini, esai yang disusun terdapat dua paragraf , disetiap paragraf terdapat kalimat utama yang jelas. Pada paragraf pertama, hanya memfokuskan pada persamaan antara dua subjek sedangkan paragraf kedua memfokuskan pada perbedaan antara dua objek.
