Assunto:  When to use "That" ? and what is its fun
 
Mensagem: 

I don´t know many grammar rules, but I know there are rules to the use of "that". But in many examples, the use or not of "that" is optional. In some cases, it´s not. For example, when "that" is being used to introduce a restrictive clause, it must be used.

"People that study do better in exams", that is, not everyone, but the people that study (restriction). Of course, in this case we could've used "who", but the meaning would be less "restrictive" and would sound more like an explanation.

But with some expressions it´s optional.

"I know (that) you will go"

"I think (that) you should go" etc.

I hope this may help
