    When to use the word "that?"

    Are both of the following sentences correct?

    I know she is going to be famous.
    I know that she is going to be famous.

    Exactly, when to use the word "that?"



    Thanks,
    Brian

    Both sentences are perfectly acceptable to a native speaker: use either, no one will turn a hair.
