    so as to

    Is it correct: "so as to we can help you better"?

    For example as in: please give us more information so as to we can help you better.

    Thank you

    Re: so as to

    Hello.
    It's not correct, I'm afraid.
    It should be '... so that we can help you better'.

    I hope my response will be of some help to you.

    Re: so as to

    And "that" can be omitted from tzfujimino's example.

    Please give us more information so we can help you better.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: so as to

    'We need more information so as to help you better.'
    Is 'so as to' used correctly?

    Not a teacher.

    As far as I know, "so as to" should be followed by an infintive.

    We moved house so as to be closer to our children.
