    since VS because

    Dear teachers,
    What is the nuance between "since" and "because"? Why aren't they interchangeable? Would you please give me examples?
    He wanted to travel to Europe because / since (?) he hoped to find a job there.
    Is "since" acceptable in the above sentence? If not really, would you please tell me why?
    Thank you for your help.

    Re: since VS because

    You can use them both IMO, and 'as'.
