Reason, Result & Purpose

I would say that reason, result and purpose sentences come a close second to contrast sentences in terms of their usefulness. Why teach so many types of sentence together? Why! I mean, that's the reason, all of these sentences can be used to answer the question "Why?"!

In this lesson we will learn,

  • the most common subordinators to show reason and purpose (because, due to, so as to, etc)
  • why we shouldn't use for + gerund to show the purpose of an action
  • what the difference between so and so that is

Oh, and in order to improve, remember to do the practice activities!
