What is his reason for being late?

Hi English Language fans! How’s your week going? Today I want to show you how to use for and why with the noun reason.

You can use reason + for.

  • What is his reason for being late?
  • Did you tell your teacher your reason for missing class yesterday?

You can also use for + reason

  • I like pizza for two reasons. It’s delicious and reasonable.
  • I asked you to come here for a reason.

You can also use reason + why/that + S + V

  • The reason why he was late was unusual.
  • I heard the reason that she missed class.

In casual English it’s also possible to use reason + S + V (without why or that)

  • The reason he was late was unusual.
  • I heard the reason she missed class.

Now it’s your turn. How about trying to write an original sentence using some of the above patterns. Use the comment box below!
