When writing a French essay, it's important to not forget to follow a good, coherent structure just like you would when writing an essay in English or any other native language.
Introduce your essay by reformulating the set question, plan a main body according to the task at hand and then don't forget a summarising conclusion which links back to the set question and highlights your stance on it.
Along the way, some useful linking words to join your paragraphs would be:
Ainsi (thus), par conséquent (consequently), autrement dit (in other words), en effet (in effect), en fait (indeed), en plus de cela (on top of this), de toute façon (in any case), bien que/quoique + subjunctive (although), malgré ça (despite that)see more
Generally, we conjugate the verb 'sein' for any verb that indicates i) movement ii) or a change in state.
For example i) gehen = to go and suggests an act of movement therefore we would have to conjugate the sein auxiliary and use with the past participle which is gegangen. Hence, 'I went' = Ich bin gegangen. (Bin being the conjugated form of sein for the subject ich)
One thing to be aware of is that verbs that indicate a lack of movement also take sein. eg. bleiben = to stay. Hence, 'I stayed at home' = Ich bin zu Hause geblieben
ii) Verbs that suggest a change in state could include einfrieren (to freeze), schmelzen (to melt) schalfen (to sleep) aufwachen (to wake up). Any verbs that mean something/someone has transformed from one state to another. eg. 'I woke up' = Ich bin aufgewachen.see more
