    "How " vs "That "

    1) This is the process how you should perform.

    2)This is the process that you should perform.

    Which one is correct and why?

    I corrected the first. The second is fine.

    The first means you're showing the method. The second identifies which process to use.

    Does that help? What does your dictionary say about "how" and "that"?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: "How " vs "That "

    As a matter of fact, I knew that the first one might be incorrect , but my question is : Why can't "how" follow "the process"?
