You may even get a little confidence boost when you realize that you already know a sizable handful of transition words!
If your knowledge is looking kind of rough, make sure to study away using the methods below.
When the dependent clause is at the beginning of the sentence, it should be followed by a comma: After I researched the topic, I created the presentation.
Do not use a comma when the dependent clause is at the end of the sentence: I created the presentation after I researched the topic.
If you’re more into immersion-based learning, make sure to include appropriate transition words when writing emails to your pen pals, writing entries in your French journal or even in text messages with another French-speaking friend. The subjunctive is nothing to fear, but sometimes it can be difficult to integrate into the French you actually use.
The tendency of some learners is to avoid it (we’ve all been there).
When the transition begins the sentence, it should be followed by a comma: First, I researched the topic. When the transition connects two independent clauses, a semi-colon comes before it and a comma follows it: I researched the topic; afterwards, I created the presentation.
