    Because / Because of

    Hello,

    Is there a rule when I have to use one of them? I'm mixed up.

    Thank you very much!

    Re: Because / Because of

    "because" is followed by a clause,while "because of" is followed by a phrase(often a noun phrase)

    For examples:
    "because of the heavy rain,we couldn't go out"
    "because it rained heavily,we couldn't go out"

    Cheers
