Transitions connect two ideas by showing a relationship between them.

'Moreover' and 'furthermore' are transitions used to add one related idea to another.

Social networks are great for business because they allow you to connect to many people. Furthermore, Facebook has a lot of fun games.
In this example, is 'furthermore' used correctly?

Social networks are great for business because they allow you to connect to many people. Furthermore, Facebook has a lot of fun games.
What is wrong with this example?

When you are not sure how to transition to a new idea in a new paragraph, you can usually do it safely using '__________', and the last general idea from the previous paragraph.

Many students choose to study abroad because of the life-lessons that travel provides. This way they not only improve their academic skills, but their personal and cultural skills as well.

Furthermore,...



The rest of this paragraph should discuss:

It is very important that there are two ideas linked by 'in addition (to)', 'moreover', and 'furthermore', and that they be similar in topic.

'Moreover' and 'furthermore' can be split up. For example, 'more over' and 'further more'.

Climate change is a problem that affects all nations. We must all take responsibility and make adjustments to our lifestyles, such as driving smaller cars, wasting less food, and recycling everything we can. Furthermore, we must educate our children about the dangers of climate change so that they can help find solutions in the future.


The next paragraph discusses ways in which climate change negatively affects individuals and businesses. The above paragraph uses 'furthermore' already. Is it correct to begin the next paragraph with 'furthermore'?


__________ way in which the film differs from the novel is the addition of Steve Buscemi's character.

    It’s the first time I leave a message and it is to Adam. The only way I could get into it was this way. I am teacher in Brazil and my students and I have been watching the engvid vídeos a lot. The ones I have already presented to them were Ronnie, Adam and also REbecca – we haven’t checked the other teacher yet, but there will be a time to do so. I really would like to have a bigger space to write or to change ideas, suggestions, etc. Is this the only way?

It is correct in the way you used it???

Friday, March 29th 2013

    Hi Benzalez,

    I’m pretty sure I did use the expression correctly. Not sure what you’re asking, to be honest. Can you make it more specific?
    Not only does subject(1) do A, but subject(1 or other) also does B.–Subject does two things, or two subjects do one thing. But different contexts will explain the use better.

    Let me know if this helps?

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

    Hi Egirardelli,

    This is the subjunctive voice:

    It is important (that) he arrive on time.

    The doctor recommended (that) I be hospitalized.

    It is a specific structure. Look for it in your grammar book. if you want to know more, you can also check out Alex’s lesson on this site.

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

      It is important that he arrive on time or he arrives on time?. You are a great English teacher.

GREAT LESSON! THANKS A LOT SIR!

Saturday, March 30th 2013

Question 9 – I thought that is no connection between the first and the second paragraph, because in the first paragraph the last two phrases are about what we must to do(take responsibility, educate our children). But probably the connection is with the first proposition – climate change affects all nations (The second paragraph – moreover affects individuals and businesses)

Saturday, March 30th 2013

    Hi Arinamg,

    Excellent point you make here. And you are right; I would reintroduce the main topic to begin the second paragraph and add another perspective. This way I am still adding ideas, but reminding the reader of what this essay is about, climate change. If I wanted to add to things we should do, but focus on one idea, I would probably use ” a third action we can take,…” “another thing we can do is…”

    Good stuff :)

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

I have enjoyed this lesson. Thanks Adam !

Saturday, March 30th 2013

Saturday, March 30th 2013

Thanks a lot Mr Adam

Saturday, March 30th 2013

Hi Adam,

May you please explain for me why you wrote ” to transition”on the board? I was excepting a verb after the preposition to , otherwise you put a noun. It sounds a bit weird for me. Thank you for you help.

Sunday, March 31st 2013

    You reminded me a question. I learned once (for two weeks) Spanish, but from English book, and there was written something about “what” and “why”. I don’t remember what that exactly was, but I try to give two examples:

    “What is this used for?” vs “Why is this used for?”

    Can we substitute “what” with “why” or vice versa? Maybe this example isn’t adequate, but I have that feeling there is something else I should know about this.

    Thursday, April 4th 2013

      Hi Morfik,

      You can ask “what is this used for?” and “why is this used?” (no for in the second). These are actually two different questions. The first asks the purpose of something (i.e. to what end), and the second asks the reason for it. Two different this, but quite commonly used interchangeably.

      Wednesday, April 10th 2013

    Hi Dora86,

    There are many nouns in English that don’t have a verb form but can be used as a verb. I explained to transition means to bridge. Bridge is also a noun that can be used as a verb. What might seem weird to you is ‘-ion’ ending. That is a bit rare to see, but it happens. Here are a few words that are the same as verb and noun. Hope it helps.

    audition, caption, condition, fashion, mention, etc.

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

Hi, please help me with pronunciation: “focus”.

Sunday, March 31st 2013

    Hi Julia,

    FO sounds like toe, Joe, low, snow,…

    the ‘u’ in CUS sounds like ‘i’ in fist, list. But it’s a pretty short sound so it sounds like ‘kiss’ but said quickly.

    Hope that helps

Many thanks, bro.

Monday, April 1st 2013

100:) Thanks Adam!

Monday, April 1st 2013

Adam,
Could you make a lesson about expression “… as well”? English native speakers often use it at the end of the sentence. Sometimes it is hard to understand.

My name is Peter.

Monday, April 1st 2013

    Hi Peter,

    as well means too, or also. We can use it at the end of a sentence just like too or also. “I want to go too= I want to go as well.” Even when you see it after a comma , as well., it works in the same way.

    Does that help?

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

      oh~~~ I see.
      I have often confused as well and also.
      Thanks~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Adam^^

      Sunday, May 12th 2013

Hello from London & thank you.

Monday, April 1st 2013

I am very confuse in preposition and conjuncton as well.
It is my humble request to Mr. Alex. Please teach me. How to use preposition and conjuction as well.

Monday, April 1st 2013

This is first time to me…But i’ve enjoyed and learned..thanks adam…

Monday, April 1st 2013

What did you mean by “…to do so”?
I looked it up on Cambridge dictionary but I didn’t get the real meaning.
Thanks

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

    Hi Henriqe,

    The confusion might be with the word ‘so’ at the end. Look at this example:

    I want to learn to play the guitar. But to do so would require more time than I have available.

    so in this sentence is used to point to something that was just mentioned before. To do so means to do what was just mentioned before. In this case, to do so = to learn to play guitar.

    Does that help?

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

good lesson, pretty useful thanks a lot…

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

I got 100!!
Thank you for the lesson!

Wednesday, April 3rd 2013

This lesson difficult for me

Wednesday, April 3rd 2013

thank you very much , really i need this lesson

Thursday, April 4th 2013

Hello again, I have three questions:

1. How to use “in addition to”? For instance how to rewrite the example from the vid:

“His laziness caused the company to perform badly last quarter. Moreover, his attitude toward the board has put his job in jeopardy.”

We can say: “In addition, his attitude toward the board has put his job in jeopardy.”

But when we want to use “in addition to”, we have to refer to “his laziness”, right? So, it would be:

“In addition to his laziness, his attitude toward the board has put his job in jeopardy.” — is that correct? (I think I just get it, but I write it anyway.) :)

2. “Which” and “which one” — For example: “Which one of them is better?” and “Which of them is better?” Do they mean the same, and can we omit “one”?

3. “play in games” or “play games” — I’m not sure how to use “play” properly in this case. If I want to ask my friend: “Do you want to play…” should I use “games” or “in games”, or “Do you want to play…” “this” or “in this”.

Thursday, April 4th 2013

    1. Yes, you are correct. If you add the ‘to’ you must refer back, because that is what the ‘to’ is doing, it is referring.

    2. They basically mean the same. You can omit the ‘one’ though usually when we have only 2 things, we add the ‘one’ to specify, “which one is better?”

    3. Usually we’d use play games. But… Michael Jordan played in some of the best games in NBA history. In this case we talk about actual competitions, (usually pro sports.) play a game, the game itself. Play in a game, the sporting action. Hope that makes sense.

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

      So, basically “play in” means participation in an event? I mean “I play hockey”, but “I’ll play in a hockey tournament that will be held in my town next month.”, right?

      Thursday, April 11th 2013

        yup :)

        Wednesday, April 24th 2013

Awesome explanation, it was easy to understand, thanks.

Friday, April 5th 2013

So important to know it

Saturday, April 6th 2013

Thank you very much Mr, Adam. I really appreciated!.
It was useful and practical lesson.

شكراً = Thanks by Arabic :)

Monday, April 8th 2013

It’s always a pleasure to watch these useful videos. However, I’ve got a question. Sometime I see the construction ‘there is’ with ‘too many’ eg. ‘There’s too many cars on the road.’ Is it right?

Monday, April 8th 2013

    Hi Dmitriy,

    No, grammatically it is not correct. However, it is quite common to hear it. You probably won’t see it written as much though. The reason many people say it though is that it is easier to say there’s than there’re.

    Hope that helps

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

Hi Adam,
I want to ask you a question. A very common question for job is “why do you want to work for this company?” and “What is your motivation?”
Could you kindly tell me what is the best answer for the same.
Bless you dear.

Tuesday, April 9th 2013

    Hi Sajjadafzal,

    These answers would take to much space here, but to answer the first one well, make sure you research the company well and highlight their best features in your answer. They want to see that you know who they are and are genuinely interested rather than just be looking for a job. they also want to see that you came prepared. For the second, be honest. Say that you hungry for success and your dreams motivate you.

    Hope that helps.

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

Hi, Adam. I’ve just watched Emma’s “Writing in English – Comma Splices” video, and I think there is small error in the sentence “So the internet…”. Comma before “it also makes” should be replaced by period or semicolon. Shouldn’t it?

Wednesday, April 10th 2013

    Hi Hiubhp,

    I looked at the quiz and video but didn’t see that sentence. Where is it?

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

      Hi. I’m sorry for confusion. Sentence, that I mean exists in your video. It appears about 6:13. There is: “So the internet not only helps people connect to friends and family anywhere in the world, it also makes it cheap to do so”. According to Emma’s lecture it should be:
      1) “So the internet not only helps people connect to friends and family anywhere in the world. It also makes it cheap to do so”.
      or
      2) “So the internet not only helps people connect to friends and family anywhere in the world; it also makes it cheap to do so”.

      Thursday, April 11th 2013

Adam, hello again, I have two examples to discuss. Lately I watched some episodes of “Friends”, and there were many questions like these below:

What did you just do?
What the hell did you do?

The questions were said immediately after a situation occurred. Why is there simple past and not present perfect? I remember the scene from “Star Wars”, the moment when Mace Windu was killed by Anakin Skywalker, and after this, the killer said: “What have I done?” What is the difference between those three questions?

Wednesday, April 10th 2013

    :)

    Technically, it should be the pres perf, but again, in everyday English, people let this stuff go. More importantly, did you notice the tone these questions were asked in? That’s where the meaning comes from I’m guessing.
    Let me know

    Wednesday, April 10th 2013

      Yes, I noticed that. I mean, when Anakin Skywalker killed Mace Windu, he said “What have I done?” as, I think, he really regretted what he did. And also the deed has bad consequences. I can think about some RPG games in one of which some people freed those bloodthirsty creatures, I mean dragons :), and now the beasts will destroy all the world. They also could say “What have we done?”

      Maybe I’m wrong, but I think that “What have I/you/we done?” is often said when something bad happens. In the RPG example, no one actually needs/wants to know why the dragons fly at the sky (maybe they already know this). But they surely know what that means. :)

      When someone says “What the hell did you do?”, I think he wants to know what actually happened. I don’t know, but it’s the only one thing that comes to mind. :)

      Thursday, April 11th 2013

        You’re right, but it’s also clear that the person asking the question knows you’ve done something bad. It’s more for emphasis.

        Please don’t hold it against me, but I’ve actually never seen Star Wars :(

        Wednesday, April 24th 2013

          Don’t worry. I’m not so big fan of Star Wars, I mean, I saw it once or twice, that’s all, and I remembered the scene. :)

          Wednesday, April 24th 2013

Thank you very much indeed.

Thursday, April 11th 2013

you are real man Adam!

Thursday, April 11th 2013

Thank you so much Mr Adam. Please can you help me? Can you explain how I can use those complex connectives but can you explain in a simpler form please? Thank you :)

Thursday, April 11th 2013

    Hi Houdah,

    I can make a lesson about it. Do you mean conjunctions like and, but… or clause markers like though, if, …?

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      Both pleaassee ;;)

      Monday, May 13th 2013

Hello Adam,

Could you make another video but with fancy words
such as albeit, having said that, and so on.

Well thanks for the video, though.

I have one question with quiz 9. I can’t understand what does “stylistically not attractive” mean.
Thanks in advance for your answering!

Saturday, April 20th 2013

    Hi Jyun,

    It means that it might be grammatically correct, but in terms of style (aesthetics) it doesn’t really work well.

    Hope that helps.

    Wednesday, April 24th 2013

      So does it mean that we don’t use this word that way? Just because of habit of use?

      Wednesday, April 24th 2013

Thursday, June 6th 2013

Hello, Teacher Adam! Thank you so much for these helpful lessons :) Here’s a question that I wanna ask you. Is the word “besides” also a transition word and does it also have the same meaning as “in addition,” “furthermore” and “moreover?” Thanks!

Friday, June 21st 2013

Thanks Adam, a very good lesson.
The 3rd question of the test is very useful so as to understand the correct use of these transitions. What about the correct word to use in that phrase instead of ‘furthermore’? Could ‘too’ at the end of the sentence be correct? (Facebook has a lot of fun games too).Cheers

Hi Adam, I don’t really understand the answer of question No. 9. Would you please explain it more for me? Thanks

Saturday, August 8th 2015

    The above paragraph uses ‘furthermore’ already. Is …it correct to begin the next paragraph with ‘furthermore’?The answer is
    Yes, but it is not recommended because it is stylistically not attractive. Why? Because you have used furthermore in the last paragraph, begin with furthermore again is a redundancy, is possible but preferably use another transition like moreover or in addition to…

Hello. Thanks for the lesson. Could I ask a question?

For example:
“Social networks are great for business because they allow you to connect to many people.”
“Social networks have a lot of fun games…..”

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to watching new lesson videos from you.
Wayne

Saturday, November 7th 2015

Hi, Adam,

I have a question on the concept of connected ideas. What do you mean by saying that? I feel more confused. When I used to write my essays, for the second and third arguments, I used these transition words you mentioned. For example, if the topic is the benefits of the social media. I will have 3 arguments. One is that it makes us make more foreign friends. Another one is that it provides a cheaper way for us to communicate with our families and friends. Third one will be it keep us updated about what happens around you every day. Are these are three connected arguments? Before, I just used moreover and furthermore at the start of the second and third arguments paragraphs. Thanks.
