替學生英文補習多年, 留意到很多中小學生作文時只懂用同一個字開首寫文章, 例如: She went to Beijing this summer. She felt unhappy during the trip because of bad weather. She lost her camera in Summer Palace and lost all her photos...
不斷用同一個字寫文章, 不但單調乏味, 更影響整篇文的組織。
As soon as, Just then (=at that time), While, When,Meanwhile, The next day, That evening , Soon after, Later, etc 這些都是很有用的時間連接詞。
