besides and except for
I am confused with the usage of besides and except for.
Besides = 'in addition to' or 'plus'
1) Besides "a," "e," "i," "o," and "u," the English alphabet often uses "y" as a vowel, as in "early" and "myself."
2) Malta has several industries besides tourism — fishing, financial services and manufacturing for example.
3) Candidates need to demonstrate other qualities besides intelligence; they need to be compassionate and restrained, too.
Except = 'with exclusion', 'everything other than' or 'minus':
1) Brazil borders on every country in South America except Chile and Ecuador.
2) The shops in the city centre are open every day except on public holidays.
3) A year — except those divisible by 4, such as 1996 and 2000 — has 365 days.
