Need a tool to improve and formalize student writing in French? Want to teach your students how to transform their short, choppy sentences into more fluid writing? These 100 French transition words will dramatically increase your students' fluidity and sentence structure for all types of writing. Each transition word is accompanied by a definition and sample sentence to show how it can be used.
The list is divided into 3 language levels. Here are some examples:
Beginner: un jour, parce que, mais, aussi, demain, hier, aujourd'hui, demain, je trouve que, finalement, maintenant, etc.
Intermediate: malgre, grace a, autrefois, a ce moment la, selon moi, car, cependant, en plus, en conclusion, etc.
Advanced: neanmoins, desormais, quant a moi, jusqu'a ce que, au detriment de, pourvue que, a condition que, d'ailleurs, en fait, pour toutes ces raisons, etc.
* Ask students to incorporate transition words in their writing
