  1. Reading a sci-fi book I came across an interesting sentence which put together two of your Grammar topics: 'In spite of' or 'Although' and 'Difference between Because and Because of'. 
    The sentence contained despite (syn. in spite of) and because of

    'You know, it's interesting, the things that happened despite or because of our intentions.'
    (Girl in Space)

    And thanks to your topics it was clear 🙂
