I want to ask how to use 'on the other hand'.
Is 'on ther other hand' used only when we are comparing two different facts or two opposite ways of thinking about a situation? Can I also use it to give additional facts or opinions?
By the way, can I used 'but' with 'on the other hand'? If 'on the other hand' refers to compare two different facts, is it necessary to use 'but'?
You have a good grasp of "on the other hand" - I'm sure you can use it properly. Give us some examples.
As for but, it's simply a conjunction. You use it, if you wish to tie the two concepts together in one sentence.
