When you want to talk about the reason something happens, you can use why or because. Do you know the difference between these two words? Lets have a look at why and because today.

We use because to introduce the reason an action happens. We use because to connect two clauses.

The pattern is [action clause] + because + [reason clause]

  • I eat pizza for lunch everyday because I love it!
  • I brought an umbrella because it is going to rain this afternoon.
  • I need a passport because I am going to travel overseas.

We use why to introduce the action that happens for a certain reason. We use why in the sentence that mentions the action.

The pattern is [reason sentence] + That’s why + [action clause]

  • I love pizza! That’s why I eat it for lunch everyday.
  • It is going to rain this afternoon. That’s why I brought an umbrella.
  • I am going to travel overseas. That’s why I need a passport.
