A common problem for any language learner is that he or she learns to write first in short, separate sentences. While this is normal for basic learners, intermediate and advanced learners must start to develop their writing into more elaborate texts, expressing ideas in more sophisticated ways. In order to achieve this, using connectors is key. A connector is a word or group of words that help join two related thoughts together, showing a certain type of relationship between the two ideas. Incorporating regular use of connectors into your writing will help your texts sound smoother and more natural, and this post is designed to help you learn just that.
