I have two sentences below:

1) As Jane and I are going to England by car, why do not you join us?

2) How about going to England with Jane and me since we are taking the car?

number one and number two are similar sentences. what I want to learn is, function of as nad since. especially I could not understand what these sentences mention about? what is the function of as nad since?

note: is it correct my sentences above grammatically?

In this case it has the following meaning: We are going to England. Take advantage of this and go with us.
Another example:
As/since I am going to the city center I can lift you.

Minor point: when making a suggestion with the "why don't you..." construction, we always contract "do" and "not" into "don't." Otherwise your sentences are correct, and mean the same thing: an invitation to accompany us to England. The implication is that since we are traveling by car (instead of by train, boat, airplane, etc.) there will be extra room in the car, so you can come along at no charge.

I have two sentences below:

1) As Jane and I are going to England by car, why [STRIKE]do not[/STRIKE] don't you join us?

2) How about going to England with Jane and me, since we are taking the car?
Number one and number two are similar sentences. What I want to learn is the function of "as" and "since".
Especially, I could not understand what these sentences mention about? I don't know what this sentence means.

What is the function of as and since? The two words are very similar to 'because'. Look up "as" and "since" in a dictionary, dictionary.com for example, and you will learn more about those two words.


Since you are asking about as and since, it is best to highlight those words by putting them in quotation marks or using italics.

Are my sentences above grammatically correct?
