Linkers

Remember 'and', 'but' and 'or' are used when we want to join sentences together. This makes learners of English express themselves more clearly. For example:

I like watching English films. I like watching French films. ->

I like watching French and English speaking films.

I like watching French films but not English ones.

I like watching French or English films but not German ones.
