Conjunctions

Average: 4.1 (32 votes)

Conjunctions are words that join clauses into sentences. One is enough to join two clauses.

Using conjunctions to join short clauses into longer sentences makes English more fluent!

For example: I like to have a cup of coffee as soon as I wake up.

Choose the expression which best completes the sentence. Sometime two are possible.
