Although vs. Though | Class 10 English Grammar

There is little difference between although and though. They are both subordinating conjunctions used to join two clauses together. Though is more common in informal speech and writing.

  • Though I wasn’t feeling well, I decided to go out.
  • Although I wasn’t feeling well, I decided to go out.
  • I decided to go out though / although I wasn’t feeling well.

Clauses introduced by though / although can go at the beginning or at the end of a sentence. When they go at the beginning, we usually separate them from the rest of the sentence with a comma.

More examples are given below.

  • Though / although she is poor she is honest.
  • I would like to go out although / though it is a bit cold.

Note that we can express these ideas using but.

  • I was not feeling well but I decided to go out.
  • She is poor but she is honest.
  • It is a bit cold but I would like to go out.

Even though

Though can be used with even. Although is not possible in this case.

  • I will go even though you tell me not to. (NOT I will go even although—)
  • Even though I did not know anybody at the party, I had a nice time.
