May is a better time to visit England than August. (Although / In addition ) the weather is cooler, there aren’t as many tourists.
Hi, Abo Hamza,
The correct option is "although" for two reasons: semantic and syntactic.
Semantically, you need to express contrast: the cool weather is a disadvantage, but the smaller number of tourists is a benefit -> Although the weather is cooler, there aren’t as many tourists.
Syntactically, "although" is a conjunction and therefore NOT followed by a comma, as shown above. Instead, "in addition" is more like a conjunct and requires a comma, for example:
- The weather is not so hot in May. In addition, there aren’t as many tourists. (Both aspects are regarded as positive.)
Thanks a lot.
