    Usage of "So + Adjective + that"

    Is this sentence okay: "He is not so good that he can get this job"?

    Re: Usage of "So + Adjective + that"

    That sounds unnatural to me. I'd use "He is not good enough to get this job".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you teacher for your reply. I want to know if the above sentence is correct anyway.

    No, it isn't.
