    Question Although and also in the same sentence?

    Can we use both "although" and "also" in the same sentence?
    For example can we say

    Although, this book looks as if it is too difficult to understand, it is also said to be very fascinating after you start reading.

    Or should I omit one of them?

    Yes, you have to remove 'also' from the clause "it is also said to be very facinating" introduced by the conjuctions 'although' if you want to use 'as if' which is an idiom. You could also say(removing as if):
    Although, this book looks too difficult to understand, it is also said to be very fascinating after you start reading.(Remove as if)
    This book looks as if it is too difficult to understand, although it is said to be very fascinating after you start reading.
