Linking Words

Cuando escribimos un texto, para darle coherencia y organizar las ideas que queremos expresar utilizamos conectores. Los conectores son palabras o frases cortas que utilizamos principalmente para unir frases, para añadir información y para contrastar ideas.

Estas palabras son conocidas en inglés como linking words y sería muy buena idea que empieces a familiarizarte con ellas si quieres expresarte con mayor fluidez y redactar textos bien organizados y de fácil comprensión para el lector.

A continuación os mostramos algunos de ellos y te mostramos algunos ejemplos:
