Many learners of English make the following mistake:
*The traffic caused that I was late.*
In English, we cannot use that after cause.
We can only say:
Something causes something else.
If you want to say that the traffic caused you to be late in natural English, you need to use a different structure, for example:
really helpful. thanks
Thank you, it’s helpful.
But I have a question:
Is there a difference between *because of* and *due to*?
Thanks in advance.
Hi, there is a subtle difference but it is often acceptable to use them interchangeably. Perhaps I will write a post on the differences. In the meantime, you can check out this article Because of vs. Due to.
