    Although it was raining, ./It was raining; though



    Although it was raining, we went out.
    It was raining; we went out though.
    It was raining; though we went out.

    Are they good, please?

    The third is not very natural.

    You could also say:
    It was raining but we went out.

    I would avoid using a semicolon unless there is a good reason to use it.

    Re: Although it was raining, ./It was raining; though

    I think it is OK to say 'It was raining but we still went out.'

    Not a teacher.
