BBC英语一分钟: Even though 和 Even if的区别

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.

我们将这两者用于强调,但意思却不尽相同。

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.

even though用于表示某件真实但却有点出乎意料的事,和despite有点像。虽然我讨厌开车,但我还是自驾去了苏格兰。虽然我不喜欢网球,但还是去看了决赛。

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.

even if用于表示假设,所表述的食物未必是真实的。就算到时候苏格兰阳光明媚,我也不会去游泳的。就算你请我我也不会去看那部电影。

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!

即使两者看起来一样,但其实是不同的——尽管你一开始没有注意到!
