What's the difference among though, even though and although? When do you use them?

They are called "subordinators" I can not point all subordinators out but subordinators are important for the academic English. If you want to learn their fundamental structure, you must start with (Independent & dependent clauses) cuz they are mostly used with dependent clauses. XD Example: Although you passed the exam, you are not happy with the result. (Although you passed the exam) is a dependent clause (you are not happy with the result) is an independent clause. Long way. Good luck X(

They are all similar and I think most American English speakers would be hard-pressed to explain the difference. "Though" is the shorter form of "although." They are basically the same. Even though means the same thing, but is a little stronger, for when you are trying to emphasize the contrast more.
