    Although, Though, Even though

    Hi there!

    Is there a difference : Although, Though, even though?

    for example, in this sentence:

    She isn't English. she speaks English perfectly.

    We can say:

    - Although she isn't English, she speaks English perfectly.
    - Though she isn't English, she speaks English perfectly.
    - Even though she isn't English, she speaks English perfectly.

    Which sentence is correct?

    All are correct, as is :

    She isn't English; she speaks English perfectly, though.

    'Even though' suggests a greater contrast of ideas, a more unexpected situation, than the others.

    Re: Although, Though, Even though

    I'd just like to point out that that Australians, Canadians, Irish, Scots, and Americans (as well as residents of some other countries I don't mean to insult by their omission) tend to speak pretty good English, despite not being English.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
