writingIn this business grammar lesson, we'll review the most common ways you can express result and purpose (reason) in English.

We use because, as and since when we want to explain the reason for something. As and since are more common in formal speech and writing:

I’m writing to complain because the desks you sent us are damaged.

I cannot attend the meeting as/since I will be on annual leave.

As and since can come at the beginning of the sentence. Normally we do not begin sentences with because, but this is possible in informal speech:

As/Since I will be on annual leave, I cannot attend the meeting.

Because you’re a first-time customer, I need to see your bank references.
