Using not only ... but also
Students often find it difficult to use the correlative conjunction not only…but also correctly.
When you use not only…but also in a sentence, you have to ensure that not only and but also go immediately before the words or expressions that they modify.
Not only can go at the beginning of a sentence. In this case, it is followed by auxiliary verb + subject. If there is no other auxiliary verb, we use do. But can be left out in this case.
