  • Hello. I'm Margot Politis. Welcome to Study English,

  • IELTS preparation. Today we're going to look at ways of connecting

  • ideas there are many ways of doing these using

  • conjunctions words that join first

  • let's listen to poll Gibson an architect while he takes us on a tour love his new

  • environmentally friendly solar house well complain about two years ago

  • and the I guess wanna interesting things about it is that

  • its 50 house and I'm nice houses

  • guess they say is a but funny and where is this is

  • father on SR timber on the outside at the specs on the inside

  • well I guess the very high

  • windows along the north side going down to the lower

  • ceiling hot on the south basically a lassie to get

  • lot of sign in through these winners in winter

  • and the louvers which guy out actually go to a point where

  • the some can be shy to completely in summer but they can be opened to let

  • some

  • right back into the house through winter this helps

  • house actually has two to North Faces

  • does the north by civil the living rooms 3 trying and then

  • the master bedroom has a North Face and the other bedrooms all seven of us

  • as met trying to maximize the what we call

  • aperture of the house which is how much sonya to get into that

  • in winter I K now we've listened to poll

  • let's look at the way he connected his ideas good communication especially in

  • an academic setting

  • is all about expressing and connecting but simple and complex ideas

  • there are many ways to do this simple sentences

  • express a single simple idea the most simple sentence

  • consists of just a subject and devoted

  • the door opens the woman

  • enters the easiest way of connecting ideas is using

  • coordination that taking two simple sentences

  • and linking them with the conjunction or joining word

  • the most common conjunction on and and

  • but other common ones I yet

  • or for and

  • sigh we use the most simple conjunctions in place

  • a full stop the door opens

  • the woman enters the door opens

  • and the woman enters the door opens

  • the woman doesn't enter the dough I pins

  • but the woman doesn't enter this into an example here

  • well complains about two years ago and

  • the I guess wanna interesting things about it is that it's five a house

  • and I'm nice houses guess they says a

  • but finance its a fiber a house and most houses

  • a brick veneer is a fiber house

  • most houses a brick veneer

  • these a two simple sentences

  • they can be linked together to form a longer sentence

  • cold a compound sentence is a fiber house

  • and most houses a brick veneer compound sentences

  • have to independent closes to causes

  • that can be separate sentences here's another one

  • ceiling hot on the south basically a lassie to get

  • lot of sign in through these mean as in winter

  • and the louvers which guy out actually go to a point where

  • the some can be shy to completely in summer but I can be opened to let some

  • right back

  • into the house through winter he's talking about

  • the louvers he joins together two sentences

  • the losers go to a point where the Sun can be shaded completely in summer

  • they can be opened to let the Sun back in three winter

  • he joins the sentences together

  • using but notice we use a comma as well

  • the louvers go to a point where the Sun can be shaded completely in summer

  • comma

  • ot they can be opened to let the Sun back in three winter

  • the conjunctions

  • and and but can also be used

  • to join words and phrases in list we separate words with comments and then

  • use a final and the house is made a fibroid

  • the house is made of ivory and

  • timber the house is made of fibro

  • timber and breaks listen to this example

  • nice houses guess they says a but finance where is this is

  • five on the outside timber on the outside but the specs on the inside

  • he forms one compound sentence from simple sentences

  • the houses fibro on the outside

  • it is timber on the outside it is bricks

  • on the inside noticed that and

  • is used to list similar things but

  • is used to contrast different items in a list

  • so we could also say the houses fibroid and

  • timber on the outside but bricks on the inside

  • okay so that's an introduction to coordination

  • remember coordination is linking

  • independent causes with conjunctions

  • these forms compound sentences

  • in

  • another way to join ideas is using subordination

  • subordination is linking and independent clause

  • with a dependent clause to make a complex sentence

  • dependent clauses a close is that cannot exist separately

  • in separate sentences they need or depend on each other

  • we can form complex sentences

  • in two ways we can use relative pronouns

  • who whose which where

  • or we can use conjunctions

  • black because or whereas when writing or speaking

  • it's important for you to practice using a variety of sentences

  • you need to use simple compound and complex sentences

  • he is another example trying to maximize the

  • what we call aperture of the house which is how much sonya to get into

  • in winter he uses and independent

  • and a dependent clause here look at these two sentences

  • they're trying to maximize the aperture

  • of the house the aperture of the house

  • is how much fun you get he joins tasty sentences together

  • with a relative pronoun they're trying to maximize the aperture

  • of the house comma which is how much Sun you get

  • now let's practice that join a simple sentences

  • to make compound sentences using coordination

  • here try to use and and pot

  • the master bedroom has a North Face

  • the other bedrooms have a North Face

  • the master bedroom

  • and the other bedrooms have a North Face and here's another one

  • the house is warm in winter the house

  • is cool in summer

  • the house is warm in winter comma but

  • it's Colin summer now let's practice

  • subordination that's making two sentences

  • into one complex sentence try using

  • whereas the house is warm in winter

  • most houses a cold in winter this can become

  • the house is warm in winter comma

  • whereas most houses a cold in winter

  • and here's another one here try to link the sentences

  • using which the house is made of fibroid

  • fibroid is a cheap building material

  • the house is made a fibroid

  • we teach is a cheap building material you need to practice forming simple

  • compound and complex sentences there are many ways to do it

  • in many different ways of punctuating this is very important for your written

  • work

  • and that's all for today I'll see you next time

  • on study English applying
