*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences.

Sentence 1: There has been more rain than sunshine so far this summer.
Sentence 2Summer is now practically over.
Sentence 3: Many people take their holiday in the summer in the hope that the weather will be good.

Many people take their holiday in the summer in the hope that the weather will be good, but the season is now practically over and there has been more rain than sunshine so far.

Unfortunately for many people, who take their holiday in the summer in the hope that the weather will be good, there has been more rain than sunshine so far, and the summer is now practically over.

Summer is now practically over, unfortunately it has been more rain than sunshine so far this summer. For that reazon many people take their holidays in the summer hoping that the weather will be good.

Many people take their holiday in the summer in the hope that the weather will be good; too bad that the summer is now practically over and there has been more rain than sunshine so far this summer.

Very well done, Audrey and Liudmila!

Yours is good, too, Olena. But see if you can come up with a sentence that does not rely on the use of the semi-colon.

Good try, Cecilia. But your answer has a comma splice and does not combine all the sentences into one.
