​‎Please tell me about how to use "but".
Because "but" is conjunction.
So is not "but" put at the beginning of a sentence?
Can I write "I like apples. But I don't like pears."?

My teacher said that "your sentence is wrong".
The teacher said that "I like apples, but I don't like pears" is correct.

Is this teacher's teachings right?
