    as, because, for

    Dear teachers,

    I get confused by as, because and for.
    According to my dictionary:
    as: because
    because: for the reason that
    for: because of

    I can't see the differences from the definitions. Could you please kindly explain them to me?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Dear Tdol,
    I am sorry I didn't express my idea clearly. What I meant is I ge confused by the meanings of the three words. In other words, I can't distinguish the meanings of them. Could you please kindly explain them again?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.
