Chinese Grammar: Lesson: Cause and effect with 因为。。。所以
It's nice to blame others, from time to time, right? So you can walk away with clean hands! This structure helps you do just that: say something occurred because this happened.
All jokes aside, this structure is pretty common in both spoken and written Chinese.
Since [something] happened, so [something] happened.
or Because of cause, therefore there is a result.
因为 can be used on its own if one wants to emphasize more on cause than on effect. Its place can vary in the sentence based on where you want to put your cause.
所以 on its own is used to explain results and means “so, therefore”.
It is often used in a sentence where an “因为” is implied, and since there’s a cause, there’s a result.
Cause + 所以 + result
