    so adj. that and that

    Hi,
    that [+ adjective/adverb]

    spoken used to say how big, how much etc, especially when you are showing the size, amount etc with your hands:
    It was quite a large fish - about that long.

    He missed hitting the car in front by that much.


    She spoke so quickly that I couldn't understand her.
    She spoke so quickly I couldn't understand her.

    (THEY ARE OK)

    BUT, I would like to ask if we use 'that' in a way as below instead of 'so that' or not.

    1)She spoke that quickly that I couldn't understand her.
    2)She spoke that quickly I couldn't understand her.

    Thanks...
