Perhaps some students are told not to begin a sentence with "because" to avoid sentence fragments
(something like "Because Mary and Samantha arrived at the bus station before noon" is a sentence fragment), but it is perfectly
acceptable to begin a sentence with "because" as long as the sentence is complete (as in "Because Mary and Samantha arrived at
the bus station before noon, I did not see them at the station.")
