In this lesson, find out when to use the conjunctions as, because and since.
As, because and since are all conjunctions. They can be used in a similar way to give the reason for something.
We use 'because' when we are talking the reason some action or event has taken place.
They visited the zoo because they wanted to see the kangaroos.
This watch is expensive because it's made from diamonds.
In some cases, the reason for the event or action is not as important, and we want to focus on the result.
In this case, we should use 'as' or 'since'.
I travel to Sydney every two weeks since half my team is based there.
I stopped by for a visit as I was in town anyway.
We often place as or since at the start of a sentence.
As I was in Sydney, I stopped by for a visit.
Since half my team is based in Sydney, I try to visit every two weeks.
