CONNECTORS: IN ADDITION (TO): meaning and examples

Good morning. Yesterday we began a series of Vitamins about CONNECTORS that are used to continue the same idea or give additional information. We explained the words also and too. Today's connector is: in addition It is used: to continue the same idea of something that has been previously stated or to give additional information. Word position: you can begin a sentence with in addition comma. Example 1 The job is approximately 40 hours a week from Mondays to Fridays. In addition, you are required to work alternate weekends, for which you will be paid overtime (horas extras). Example 2 The building facilities include a conference room and restaurant. In addition, there is a small gym in the basement (sótano). In Examples 1 and 2, in addition is followed by a clause. It can also be followed by an object. In this case we must use the phrase in addition to object comma. Example 3 In addition to a conference room and restaurant, the building facilities include a small gym which is located in the basement. Tomorrow we will look at another connector word used for giving additional information.
