Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Bass,

Thanks for getting back to me.

Yes I meant theme. What I want to write is the introduction of a report for Cambridge C1 exam. In the report, I should make use of a wide range of vocabulary and demonstrate that I command the writting style. As I am not familiar with the "expression" overarching theme, I just wanted to be sure that I can use it in my formal report.

Hi Dani,

I think you meant the overarching ''theme'' here.

If you can provide what you wanted to say in your original language, I can help you translate it properly.
