Technologically and linguistically adventurous EFL teacher

Here is a worksheet I put together to help my students with some of the linking words of contrast which commonly come up in FCE Use of English part 1, and which they can use in their writing. The first page has rules for using but, however, nevertheless, although, even though, despite and in spite of. I know it’s not exhaustive, but it’s hopefully a good start!

(You can download the worksheet by clicking ‘slideshare’ and logging in – it’s free to create an account, and you can link via facebook if you want to.)

Answers: 1b 2c 3a 4c 5d 6d 7b 8a

Do you have any other suggestions for helping students to understand the differences between these words?

  3. A huge thank you for this one! I have a lesson tomorrow on this aspect of language with the director of one of the companies I work with and remembered that you had published this recently (thanks email subscription!) and am always looking for good ways to work on linkwords! Again, you just saved me about an hour’s worth of preparation–thanks Sandy!
