    that or so that

    Hello everyone,

    Look, you should make their life so unbearable that/so that they will take their things and go.

    Which one is more appropriate in the sentence above.

    Thank you.

    Re: that or so that

    Don't use 'so' twice. Say either

    'You should make their life so unbearable that they will take their things and go'

    or

    'You should make their life unbearable so that they will take their things and go'.

    But is it OK to say 'You should make their life unbearable, so much so that...'?
