INFINITIVE OF PURPOSE
An infinitive can be used to express a purpose:
I'm calling to obtain an enrollment to study.
Diya went to the pull-down menu of the computer to open the work.
In order and so as can be used before a to-infinitive for emphasis in more formal styles:
They have a book with they in order to improve the English level.
In order to get some opportunities, we need to learn different languages specifically English.
The negative is always in order not + to-infinitive or so as not + to-infinitive:
I studied hardest so as not to be fail the level.
In order not to lose time, we must work at once.
Answering a Why question with an infinitive of purpose is similar to answering with beacuase
-Why did you check the message?
to make sure it so I sent correctly.
-Why did you save that document?
To keep it in order and don't lose it.
Comparisons with as ...... as
To express similarity
We use as + adjective + as to make comparisons when the things we are
comparing are equal in some way
-The new computer is as good as the old laptop.
-Facebook is as famous as instagram for your photos section.
Use the adverb almost in affirmative statements to indicate that two things are
very similar but not exactly the same
-The Windows 7 is almost as fast as Windows 10.
