Would "D'ailleurs" also be acceptable in the sentence that starts, "De plus, je n'ai jamais été très patient..." ?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
Chris is correct that they are close and yet not in this case. "Besides" means "en plus / de plus / en outre" whilst "d'ailleurs" means "by the way, incidentally, by the by".
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
D'ailleurs and de plus are very close to each other. D'ailleurs is preferred if there is a logic connection implied.
