Making Compound Sentences READ THIS FIRST When you are writing, it would be strange to only use short, simple sentences. Instead, try making some compound sentences. Two simple sentences can be joined together with a conjunction to make a compound sentence. For example: ‘I do not like eating meat.’ is a simple sentence. ‘I love vegetables.’ is also a simple sentence. By putting the two sentences together and joining them with a conjunction, we can make a much more interesting compound sentence. ‘I do not like eating meat’ + but + ‘I love vegetables.’ = ‘I do not like eating meat, but I love vegetables.’ Remember, commas are not conjunctions and they should never be used to join two sentences together. (Commas are not sticky, so you can’t use them to stick information together!)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
