I feel like I knew this but couldn鈥檛 explain why it made sense. Now I have a better understanding of the topic and as a result, I can use it more often.

I have loved this activity teacher Chris, besides, linking devices are among my favourites in English, since they allow me to speak more coherently and as you said, cohesively. Thank you very much!

  1. John鈥檚 Problem
    John had already arrived late to work twice in the past week, it was imperative that he arrived on time today. Luckily, he had prepared everything the night before. Consequently, John was able to get to work on time, and avoid his boss鈥 wrath. Nevertheless, the fact that his car wasn鈥檛 starting had him pretty worried, and he realized that if he didn鈥檛 act quickly he could have a real dilemma on his hands. As a result, after deliberating what to do, he decided to ask if he could borrow his friend鈥檚 car. His friend was easily able to grasp the importance of the situation and agreed to lend him the car.

  2. Just Breather
    When I arrived at the lecture hall for the group presentation, I felt calm and relaxed. Nevertheless, one of my partners was rather nervous. I knew that if my partner couldn鈥檛 calm down before we presented, it would reflect poorly on me too. Due to this, my plan was to do some simple breathing exercises with him in hopes that he would feel less anxious. In the end, he was able to relax just in time for us to start our presentation, and ours was the best one of the day.

These last lessons help me to understand better the structure of a commentary, story or sentence. Nice!
