    I think a very useful one is whereas plainly because it helped me out in the debating !

    Connectives such as whereas and however are very useful when countering someone in a debate. If you want to go for the more direct approach try using words like but and alternatively.

    I think that my most used connective was, ‘Even though’ because it helped me say that even if a few celebrities do something it donsn’t mean all of them do.
