What does the word “though” mean and when should be used? I'm a little confused about the word though. I hear it a lot of times in different sentences in different sequences, as well as in speaking and writing.

1. (conj.) = Although ※The difference between "although" and "though" is "though" can be put between two clauses or at the beginning of a sentence while "although" can only be put in the beginning of the sentence. 2. (adv.) = however, but "though" should be put at the end of a sentence. e.g. Our team lost. It was a good game though. I am an English leaner too, so I guess you may get confused with "THOUGHT," which has "t" in the end. 1. (v.) Past tense and p.p. form of "think." 2. (n.) Something you think in your mind. Hope this can help you! :)

'Though' and 'although' both mean 'in spite of' but... When used as a conjunction, 'although' and 'though' are interchangeable. 'Although' is considered more formal. Population growth is increasing, although/though some countries are creating restrictions. When 'though' is used as an adverb, it is not interchangeable with 'although'. This weekend, though, theaters were packed. Hope that helps. Andrew
