Hello, fellas. Our session today is about other ways of expressing cause and effect relationship. Usually it is introduced by prepositions, like because of and due to, or conjunctions, such as because.
(More on cause and effect: https://englishtips4u.com/2012/01/10/engclass-because-for-since-as-because-of-due-to/)
However, we can use the following constructions to show cause and effect.
Such…that is used with a modified noun. The pattern is:
such + adjective + noun + that
1. It was such a sunny day that we went to the beach.
2. She wrote such interesting books that everyone wanted to read them.
An adjective or adverb is enclosed by so…that. The pattern is:
so + adjective/adverb + that
1. The day was so sunny that we went to beach.
2. Luka Modric performed so well that he was named as the best player.
So…that can also be used with expressions of quantity: many, few, much, and little.
1. They had so little water that we could not take a bath.
2. She wrote so many books that she was awarded a prize.
