    Learned to be worse

    The sentence is:

    Because you know how to be bad, but I've learned to be worse.

    Do you think that the end is correct? Must I add the word how again. I'm not sure.

    Re: Learned to be worse

    The 'how' is optional. You could use it, but it works just as well without it.

    Re: Learned to be worse

    For the sentence to be grammatical, you must delete either 'Because' or 'but'.
