UNIT 1 — Lesson 2B
Transitional expressions and sentences are commonly used to connect paragraphs.
Topic: Effects of Television on Modern Life
This sentence uses a contrasting transition, "however", to tell the reader that there is a change from a negative effect to a positive effect. Here is the first sentence again and the sentence that follows it:
However, not all the effects of television are negative. Without television we would not know as much about events around the world as we do.
In subsequent units, you will learn specific transitions that are used in the various essay types.
