"Que" en lugar de "porque"

Do Spaniards use this because it's quicker and 'neater' to say? So that they can get their meaning across even more rapidly!!

This question relates to:

Hola Alan,

That is a good question! To be honest, I don't think that is the reason. It is simply one of the many uses of "que" in Spanish. You could also use "como" with the same function (=porque). See this example: "Como ha ganado mucho dinero, va a comprarse un coche nuevo" (Because he won a lot of money, he is buying a new car.) 

Un saludo
