We often use the phrases “due to” and “because of” interchangeably.
But “due to” means “caused by.” With that in mind, be careful to use the phrase appropriately.
A few examples:
- Her limp was due to a recent car accident.
- She had a cough due to the flu.
- Because of his friendly nature, he found it easy to meet new people.
- His good grades were because of uninterrupted daily study.
