Connectors in English are small words and phrases that help you link sentences and even whole paragraphs. They can be used in both speech and writing. When you use connectors in your essays, they automatically become more organised and logical. Every sentence flows right into the next. Because of this, your writing and speech become easier to understand and clearer.
