· 文法跟讀單元 In-Tense

Welcome to 15min.today, the home of English Shadowing. I'm your host Gavin and this is In-Tense Episode 67. Hi guys. We're moving on to something new and they're called conjunctions. Now there are three kinds of conjunctions, and today we're going to be looking at the first one, which is coordinating conjunctions. Now what do conjunctions do? Well, they connect words or groups of words and show the words are related. So, when you make a list and you add two things, “I like coffee and tea.” There's a relationship between those which is quite simplistic, that and is a conjunction. Today we're going to be looking at the first one, which is coordinating conjunctions, and there are only seven of them, and they are the following words: for, and, nor, but, or, yet & so. Those are our seven coordinating conjunctions, so let's look at our examples and you will see how they are used.
