一個英語學習者會不會使用連接詞，將直接決定其表達的地道程度和邏輯性，寫作中如此，口語更是這樣。不少“烤鴨”不習慣使用邏輯詞，因為在漢語中有時我們并不需要使用太多的邏輯詞來組成我們的句子。例如漢語的“你喝，我就喝”，但是到了英語，我們的句子就變成了“If you drink, I'll drink.” 在這里我們需要用if來連接兩個句子。這是因為中文注重意合，英文注重形合，舉個例子：

1. Should parents set goals for children?
It depends. On the one hand, if the goals are reasonable for children, their parents should set it. This is because reasonable targets are helpful when children are in the process of problem solution. However, if the goals are beyond kids’ reach, their parents had better avoid setting them. It will only lead to burdens to their kids with too many goals to realize.
2. Do parents in your countries spend a lot of time with their children?
Well, it’s hard to say. The first thing I should mention is that for those white-collar parents, they don't have too much time to stay with their children during the weekdays. They're very busy with their work some of them may work until late at night, for the purpose of winning the promotion to survive in the competitive society, so they can only have the happy family time with their children during the weekends holidays. Whereas,for those parents who have their own business, they have more time to stay with their children. That is because these parents don’t have to get up early arrived at the office on time every day as they can arrange the daily schedule according to their daily schedule, so they can spend a lot of time with their children.
