After which or after that

English Language Learners Asked by Pupu on September 6, 2020

She was educated at home until the age of fifteen, “after that” she was sent off to finishing school in Singapore.

Is using “after that” appropriate in this sentence ? Or I should use after which?

What is the difference between the two ?

One Answer

"After which" would be appropriate if it is used to connect the two independent clauses together to form a single sentence. "After that" would be appropriate if you broke it into two sentences: "She was educated at home until the age of fifteen. After that, she was sent off to finishing school in Singapore."
