Even though vs Even if
Even though 和 Even if的用法区别
Hi, I'm Phil from BBC Learning English. Today, I'm going to tell you the difference between even though and even if.
大家好，我是BBC英语学习的菲尔，今天，我们来学习even though 和 even if的区别。
Now, we use them both for emphasis but they don't mean the same.
We use even though to introduce something that's true, but might be a little bit unexpected. It's a bit like despite. Even though I hate driving, I'm still going to Scotland by car. Even though I hate tennis, I'm still going to watch the final.
We use even if to introduce something hypothetical, so it might not be real. Even if it's sunny when we're in Scotland, I'm not going swimming. Even if you paid me, I wouldn't watch that film.
So, even though is for things that are true but unexpected, and even if is for things that are hypothetical, so they might not be real.
所以，表示真实却出乎意料的事用even though；表示假设或未必真实的事用even if.
Even though they look the same, they are different - even if you didn't notice at first!
