Conjunctions   (and,but, or, so, because)
We use these words (conjunctions) to join two sentences. They make one longer sentence from two shorter sentences:

           The car stopped and the driver got out.
 
And/but/or
We stayed at home       and    watched television.
My sister is married     and    lives in London.
He doesn´tlike her,      and    she doesn´t like him.
I bought a newspaper,  but   I didn’t read it. 
It´s a nice house,            but     it doesn´t have a garden.
Do you want to go out,  or    are you too tired?
 
So (the result of something)
It was very hot,  so  I opened the window.                 
Joe does a lot of sport, so  he’s very fit.
They don’t like travelling,  so  they haven´t beento many places.
 
Because ( the reason for something )

Too/either          so am I/neither do I    
We use too and either at the end of a sentence.
We use too after a positive verb:
1. a: I´m happy.
2. b: I’m happy too.
1. a: I enjoyed the film.
 
1. b: I enjoyed it too.
We use either after a negative verb:
a: I´m not happy.b: I´m not happy either.
 
a: I can´t cook.
b: I can´t either.

|So                        |do/does… |
|            |did… |
