‘Because‘ is one of the first words that people learn when studying English. It’s easy to use but as it’s often taught in conversation settings, students don’t always use it properly in writing.
Here are a few reminders about how to use and how not to use because (don’t forget to put the subtitles on if needed):
- ✅ I’m hot because it’s summer.
- ❌ I’m hot. Because it’s summer.
- ✅ Because it’s summer, I’m hot.
