 ABOUT: 

■  Let's look at three words that expresses a reason or a cause. "Since" and "because." から, だから, and
なぜなら.

HOW to use:

■ から

Verbs: After the plain form (past or non-past) of the verb.

よく勉強(べんきょう)したから試験(しけん)合格(ごうかく)しました。
Because I studied hard, I passed the test.
[well | studied | because | test | passed]

Adjectives: Place から after the adjective.

あのドレスは(あお)から()きです。
Because that dress is blue, I like it.
[that | dress | blue | because of | like]

Adjectives: Add the past or non-past plain form of
です. だ or だった.

あの絵がきれいだから()います。
Because that picture is pretty, (I) will buy it.
[that | picture/painting-pretty/clean | because of | buy]

The next two listings don't connect sentences, but they do connect thoughts and show the reason or the cause of the previous sentence. "Therefore" "because of that" "so".

■ だから/ですから so; therefore

だから()()けてと()ったでしょう!
Look, didn't I tell you to be careful!
[therefore | be careful | said | didn't I?]

■ なぜなら because of that

日本語(にほんご)勉強(べんきょう)しています。なぜなら、いつか日本(にほん)()きたいからです。
Because I want to go to Japan one day, I'm studying Japanese.
[Japanese language | studying | therefore | one day | Japan | to | like to go | because]
