    Donc is my favorite one

    D'abord - First
    En somme - In conclusion/To sum up
    En outre - Also

    I hope this will help you :
    all the same : malgré tout, quand même
    after all : après tout
    Also, ... : De plus, ... / De même, ... (préférer: moreover)
    and : et
    as a consequence : en conséquence, par conséquent
    as a matter of fact : en fait
    as a result : en conséquence
    besides : d'ailleurs
    but : mais
    by the way : soit dit en passant
    despite : malgré
    either ... or ... : soit... soit ...
    eg / e.g. : par exemple
    ... , for ... : ..., car ....
    for all that : malgré cela
    furthermore : en outre, de plus
    hence : d'où
    however : cependant, toutefois
    ie / i.e. : c'est-à-dire
    if not : sinon
    in addition : de surcroît
    in any case : en tout cas
    in/by comparison : par comparaison
    in/by contrast : par opposition
    in effect : dans la réalité
    in fact : en fait
    in other words : en d'autres termes
    in spite of... : malgré...
    in that case : dans ce cas
    in the first place, in the second place, : en premier lieu, en second lieu,
    in the same way : de même
    in this case : dans ce cas
    instead of : au lieu de
    moreover : en outre, de plus
    nevertheless / nonetheless : néanmoins
    notwithstanding : nonobstant
    on the contrary : au contraire
    on the one hand ... on the other hand ... : d'une part ..., d'autre part ...
    or rather : ou plutôt, ou mieux, ou plus exactement
    otherwise : sinon, mais par ailleurs
    over and above : par dessus le marché
    that is to say : c'est-à-dire
    then : alors
    thereby : de ce fait,
    therefore : par conséquent
    this is why : c'est pourquoi
    though : malgré tout
    thus : par conséquent
    to this end : à cet effet

    wats on the other hand

    En Revanche

    Normalement - normally
    D'habitude - usually
    Cependant- however
    Et - and
    Mais- but
    Parce que - because
    Car - because
    Donc - so/therefore
    Alors - so (but more like as a question, as in; so what happened?)
    Comme - like/such as
    Aussi - also
    Si - if
    Parfois - however
    Ou - or

    (Original post by helper1996)
    Parfois - however
    I think you're mixing up parfois, which means sometimes, with toutefois, which is a formal way of saying however.

    Aussi is also
