Sorry, but my Spanish is not good enough to answer in Spanish, so I hope this helps! ;) The phrase "due to" is the same as the phrase "because of". For example: - I can not go hiking because of a pain in my back = I can not go hiking due to a pain in my back. - I missed the concert because of my work schedule = I missed the concert due to my work schedule. - Because of the rain, the roads were slippery = Due to the rain, the roads were slippery. The phrase "according to" means that someone said something. For example: - According to my brother, that band is not very good. - According to the Ancient Romans, the Sun goes around the Earth. (no es verdad ;) - Unemployment is going down, according to the New York Times. I hope this helps!
