(機場內)
地勤: What can I do for you, sir?

男乘客: Although it is still very early, but I want to check in anyway.

地勤: Well… but….

男乘客: Because I want to have a better view, so I’d like a window seat.

地勤: Well…

男乘客: What’s wrong? There’s no window seat? Or I can’t check in now?

地勤: Um… Sure …

陳:用 ‘although’ 這個連接詞說出相反意思即附屬句。”Although it is still very early”,之後的主句開頭就不應該用另一個連接詞 ‘but’ “I want to check in anyway” ,而用 ‘because’ 這個連接詞說出原因”Because I want to have a better view”,這部分是 subordinate clause,即附屬句, 主句是”I’d like a window seat”,前面不用加另一個連接詞 ‘so’ 。

那位先生check in 了沒有呢?

(機場內)
地勤: Sir. I am afraid I just found out your flight has left.

男乘客: Oh, no! My watch stopped! But…

地勤: But you should be more careful next time. See you!
