    So you will go to Boston. (...) where do you stay?

    Let's say there is a dialoge like this.


    A: Which univesity will you go?

    B: Harvard University.

    A: So you will go to Boston. (...) where are you going to stay?


    When I want to ask a different question on same topic, which word can I use before the question? In my native language, we use a word in situations like this. I am wondering is there a word in english as well that is used in the same situation?

    Re: So you will go to Boston. (...) where do you stay?

    A: Which university are you going to?
    B: Harvard.
    A: That's in Boston. Where are you going to stay?

    (I'm not sure what the third line actually means).

    When I want to ask a different question on same topic, which word can I use before the question?

    I'm not sure what you mean in this question. In English, you have to use the appropriate question word: Where, When, How, Why, etc. regardless of what has come before.

    You can also say "Consider the following dialogue".

    I don't understand what you mean.

    What is that word, and what does it (roughly) translate to in English?

    I know it. What I am asking is that before the question word what can I use? In my native language, we use a word when we ask a different question. I think english speakers use "and" in that situation but I'm not sure.

    "So"/"And"/"But"/"Well" depending on context.

    You could use 'So', I suppose. I wouldn't use any of them.

    Re: So you will go to Boston. (...) where do you stay?

    From the longman dictionary,


    One of the meanings of "so" (https://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/so)

    used when asking a question about what has just been said

    Example sentence;

    He's going to Paris on business.

    So when is he coming back?


    One of them meanings of "and" (https://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/and)

    used to introduce statement, remark, question


    Example sentence;

    She's getting married in June.

    And who's the lucky man?


    I don't understand the difference (when they are used in this sense). They look same to me.
