    Re: so/very tired

    B,I'm not a teacher as you know,ok!

    In spoken English you may say both but in written English you can't(grammatically)

    SO+adj+that

    1-I'm so tired that I can't stand up (you have to use this construction: so...that)

    2-I'm very tired.(that's all .You don't need anything to add)

    I'm waiting for the teachers' replies because my reply can be wrong.

    Thanks Veron.
    I heard your explanation from a friend here that I want to clarify things out. And I think you just did. Thanks!
