Hello viewers. I hope you do well wherever you are. In this post I provide another grammar lesson along with other grammar lessons on the subject of Adverb Clauses.
In this lesson I give you more examples to rehearse and memorize each grammar part.
|EXPRESSING CONTRAST (UNEXPECTED RESULT): USING EVEN THOUGH|
(a) Because the weather was cold, I didn’t go swimming.
(b) Even though the weather was cold, I went swimming.
(c) Because I wasn’t tired, I didn’t go to bed.
(d) Even though I wasn’t tired, I went to bed.
Because is used to express expected results.
Even though is used to express unexpected results.
Even though means despite the fact that and is a more emphatic version of though and although.
Note: Like Because, even though introduces an adverb clause.
- Even though he’s 86, he has excellent health
- Even though she hasn’t really got the time, she still offered to help
- Even though he lost his job as Arts Minister, he continued to serve in the government.
