- For Teachers
I need to find some formal conjunction word for this type of statements.. I put here "whereas", but I feel that there is a better word I don't know.
And if somebody found some other inaccuracies in my sentences, I'll be very thankful if you'll tell me about that and suggest a better way to say.
Holding a degree in computer science, I'm working as a secretary. (Whereas) I would have brought more benefits to my company if they would give me more opportunities.
I have an old violin, but I can play only few notes on it. (Whereas) one can expect a better fate for this instrument.
After the big snowfall our town faces significant problems with traffic. (Whereas) that could be avoided if the authorities had paid more attention to this problem.
Although there is a conservatory in our town, there is no a professional orchestra here. (Whereas) playing in orchestra would be a natural type of job for conservatory graduates.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
Thank you for your reply!
But which word I can put there if I want more cohesion between two sentences?
Or should I make a single sentence, such as
Holding a degree in computer science, I'm working as a secretary; whereas I would have brought more benefits to my company if they would give me more opportunities.
"Whereas" is not a common word. Outside of formal resolutions of government bodies or in legal paperwork, there is no use for the word.
I'd say you should use it as a contrast word.
You'd never know they were twins. Elaine is brilliant but cold and reserved, whereas Lorraine is super friendly and charming but dumb as a pile of dirt.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Thanks to everyone, now I see indeed that this is not a good word here at all. But what could be here instead?
In spite of the fact that..
