Hi Oleks,

You're right - both the introduction and conclusion of a piece of writing should not be too long and not contain too much information.

Your written and spoken English is perfect here. yes

Again, the only thing I would change is the word "output" to "conclusion" The word "output" tends to be used in completely different (usually more scientific/engineering-related) contexts. Take a look at this link for more examples: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/output
