  • Hi everyone I am Niharika and thank you for clicking on this video. Well in today's lesson

  • we are gonna look at linking words that will help you to add extra information. Now linking

  • words are also called as connecting words in English and it helps you to give an idea

  • to what you are saying so people can understand you better. Linking words or connecting words

  • can be used for various reasons. Of course it can be used to add information it can be

  • also used to give reasons, to give examples or to just conclude something. So these are

  • very helpful especially when you want to speak English fluently. SO there are very simple

  • words and once you know them you will never fall short of words especially when you want

  • to add extra information. So lets's have a look.

  • The very first one is and of course its the most simple and the most common word used

  • in English. So we use the word and -it is a linking word or a connecting word which

  • helps you to add information. So we have an example here on the board. We spoke about

  • training, sales and the budget. So you want to add about what you spoke about. You spoke

  • about training you also spoke about sales and you spoke about the budget. so we end

  • up using the linking word and. Now remember when you are writing and using the word and

  • never ever put a comma before and. many people do this, it's absolutely incorrect. Don;t

  • do that never put a comma. Of course there will be a comma between different things but

  • the moment you use the word and there will be no comma. Okay

  • The next one also. Also is another linking word that can be used to add that extra information

  • or to put a little more emphasis. Now we also spoke about sales projection. So of course

  • when you are talking to someone, probably there was a meeting the company and you all

  • spoke about training, you all spoke about sales , you all spoke about the budget and

  • now you want to add that extra information that you spoke about - sales projection also.

  • So you gonna say "Oh we also spoke about sales projection. So you use the linking word also.

  • Now remember we do not use 'also in the beginning of a sentence. never start your sentence,

  • although many people do that but try to avoid it. Never start your sentence with also. You

  • can also use the word also with not only. For example - we not only spoke about training

  • but also about sales projection. SO that;s how you can use both the words in one sentence.

  • The next one - In addition. Now as I mentioned usually in English we do

  • not start the sentence with also but instead of that you can the word ' In addition' the

  • phrase 'In addition' In addition is another linking word and how

  • you can use it - In addition to this we discussed team building - That's too much of discussion!

  • So in addition to this we are using the linking word or the connecting word In addition to

  • this we discussed team building which of course it also means also. Right! you are adding

  • that extra information. The next one as well as - Now as well as can

  • come right in the front of a sentence right at the beginning and it can also come in the

  • middle, both are correct. You can start your sentence with as well as but you can also

  • use as well as in the middle. let's look at the example here - We are interested in cost

  • as well as quality. It means that you are not just interested in cost but also quality

  • and to add that extra information you have used the linking phrase or the connecting

  • phrase 'as well as'.Hope that's clear to you let's have a look at another one here.

  • Too - Too is another very very common word used in English. Remember the word too comes

  • at the end of a sentence or it comes after a subject. So you never start your sentence

  • with the word too. Too ...that's just weird. You can use the word too at the end of the

  • sentence or you can use after the subject. And the word too is another linking word that

  • can be used to add that extra information. So let's look at the example on the board

  • here- I too was concerned about the production delay. So it was not just my team members

  • but I too it means that i am adding that extra information that I too was concerned about

  • the production delay. So if you say I too after the subject that is correct. Right!

  • Now let's have a look at the last one - Moreover or furthermore. Both are linking words or

  • connecting words and they can be used interchangeably because they mean the same. when do we use

  • these two words? Moreover or furthermore we use it especially when you have made a point

  • but you want to emphasize on something else as well, so you make a statement and you emphasize

  • by making another statement. Look at the example here you will get an idea. Marketing plans

  • give us an idea moreover they tell us about market segmentation. So here you have made

  • a point, you are clear you made a statement that marketing plans five us an idea. Now

  • to connect and you want to add that extra emphasis it's gonna be moreover they tell

  • us about market segmentation. Either you can use the word moreover or you can use the word

  • furthermore. So it helps you when you have already made a point but you still want to

  • add that extra information or put an emphasis on the point that you just made.

  • So you got that right, So these are the linking words that you can use to add extra information

  • So hope you don't fall short of words especially when you want to say something more. So go

  • ahead use them these are very helpful, will help you to speak fluently so do practice.

  • I will be back with a new lesson till then you take care.
