Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? Could you possibly tell me what else can you say instead of “but” here?

Of course the seafood is excellent, and the views are spectacular. “But” this package includes a free late-night ramen stand inside the hotel.
A: you mention that the seafood is excellent. Is the package including a free late-night ramen stand inside the hotel also a good thing? If so, you can use ‘adding connectives’ to emphasise that this feature is also good too. Some examples are: moreover, also, in addition.

If it’s a bad thing, then use a ‘contrasting connective’. Examples are: although, however, besides.



I get the impression that the free ramen stand is a positive thing (in addition to the seafood the hotel already offers) if you use an adding connective when describing it.

I get the impression that the free ramen stand is a bad thing if you use a contrasting connective.

Hope this made sense :)

Other questions about "Course"

Q: There is a course in my college. If I take it, I have to study abroad because it's a necessary credit. However, If I take it, teachers help me to improve my English skills. That's why I can't decide whether I'll take it rather than whether I'll study abroad. does this sound natural?
A: If I take it _____. However if I take it _____ ← 不自然ですね。
◯ "If I take it _____. However, if I don't take it ______."

✕ If I take it (the course), I have to study abroad because it's(????) a necessary credit.
When using "it", make sure it's clear what "it" is referring to. The first "it" here refers to the course. What does the 2nd "it" refer to? If it ALSO refers to the course, it doesn't work, since a course is not a credit.
✕ "it's a necessary credit".
If it's studying abroad, it still doesn't work, since studying abroad is also not a credit. Perhaps, "because it will allow me to receive necessary credits" かな??

You said, "If I take it, I have to study abroad". So, studying abroad and taking the course go together. But at the end you say, "I can't decide whether I'll take it (or) / rather than ---- study(ing) abroad", making it look like taking it and studying abroad are mutually exclusive.. あれあれ?どち?

If I take it, teachers help → If I take it, my teachers will help me...
if ~~~(現在形)、~~~(未来形)。
◯ "If you build it, they will come."

Q: How do you explain this?? Of course, I know the correct answers since I'm a native English speaker, but it's troubling me just thinking about how to explain it... >_

Q: Can we answer "thank you " by saying "of course" or "you got it"?
A: 可以,但是和你蛮熟的人。在华语,就是用“那当然”来回复“谢谢”。一样的道理。看的懂吗?对不起,我华语没那么好。。。
Q: I've heard that replying "of course" is considered impolite when someone asks you a question that you think the answer is obvious to.
For example, "did u watch the World Cup finale?"
Would "why, certainly" be better?
A: As Weasel said, it depends on context and tone voice. A couple possible colloquial answers that are perhaps more pleasant are as follows:

"I sure did."

"You bet I did."

"Without a doubt."

In formal contexts, I would probably say "most certainly", but it does indeed sound old-fashioned, as stated.
