    Question Sentence of concession - How to use though?

    Hi I am wondering how can i use though particularly at the end of the sentence?
    I can barely use Although, Even though.......etc.


    Although the weather was cold, we went out.


    Could you teach me how to use though at the end with reference of the Sentence order?

    Thanks in advance.
    I appreciate your endless work. :)

    Although it was cold, we went out.
    Though it was cold, we went out.
    Even though it was freezing, we went out.
    We went out even though it was freezing,
    It was cold; we went out, though.

    It was cold; we went out, although.

    It could. This has the idea of our discovering, after we went out, that it was cold. I would not be surprised if the following sentence were, "We came back after only ten minutes".

    So the full sentence, or rather, the complete sentence is: We went out, it was cold,though, we cam back after only ten minutes. that's right?

    I would expect to see:

    We went out. It was cold, though, and we came back after only ten minutes.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
