How to use introductory words and linkers in English

Have you ever thought about how often and how strongly we are influenced by various speakers who are trying to convince us of something? Why is this happening? The thing is that in order to conduct successful and convincing communication, a person needs to express his or her thoughts coherently, fully and colorfully. If everything is more or less clear with your native language, what should we do about English? After all, the main thing is not to forget the words and grammar! How can we manage thinking about the beauty of our speech? In fact, there is nothing terrible in this. All we need to sound convincing is to memorize introductory words and phrases in English.
