Can I start my essay with "To do so"? Does it sound too informal?

These are the sentences: the teacher could give a lecture ... To do so, they should train ...

  • How about "In order to do that, ..."? – user3169 Oct 24 '18 at 23:56

You can certainly start a sentence with that phrase. To do so, however, is usually rather more formal than informal.
