    从严格的语法学角度上讲,due是个形容词,不能用作介词。这都是过时的语法规则了

    Traditionally due to should be restricted to adjectival use; hence, it should usually be followed with a to be verb. In that sense due means attributable. & Y$ e$ h( F7 C! d  \

    - due to modifies a noun (you will probably need a to be verb for it)
    ; y( h- t5 Z0 n' [+ Q0 |4 v- because of modifies a verb (you have already a verb in the sentence for it)
    : M4 e6 N3 u0 w
    ' ]* Y: C) u" aGenerally speaking, you will learn that it is better to write actively and avoid to be verbs.- Z$ j5 }2 E- Y6 C( m
    Although the language is changing and due to is widely used instead of because of, owing to, and caused by, I think it's easier to just avoid due to.

    Both above sentences are correct, but you better practice using the second one.
