What is difference bet ween beside and besides ?

Something that is beside something else is at the side of it or next to it.

E.g. I moved from behind my desk to sit beside her.

Besides is used to emphasize an additional point that you are making, especially one that you consider to be important.

E.g. The house was too expensive and too big.  Besides, I'd grown fond of our little rented house.
