So I was wondering how to say "so" as in for example "I've just started learning Spanish, so I don't speak that well yet"?

I know that "Así que" can be used for something like this but I was wondering if there is a more direct word. I often come up with phrases that would need a word like this, but I haven't understood how to phrase it.

Entonces? Pues?

Yeah me too, but I don't feel confident that it's good. Haven't really understood the difference between pues and entonces either tbh

In this case I would say 'so' is really being used more like 'therefore'. If anything it's a shortening of 'so that'. I would say for that reason entonces isn't appropriate most of the time.

In your example, one would use así que.

The word "so" in English is quite interesting - it has numerous uses and meanings depending on the context.

Using "so" to refer to a consequence: "I didn't have enough money, so I couldn't buy it." - "No tuve suficiente dinero, por lo que no lo pude comprar" (it's useful to think of "por lo que" and "por lo tanto" as "therefore" in English)

Using "so" to indicate a purpose: see /u/-Obito- comment

Using "so" to show addition: "That computer broke down, and so did the other one" - "Esa computadora se rompió, y también la otra"
