Sunday quick grammar tip: “even if” vs “even though”

Michael Uncategorized Leave a Comment

How’s your weekend going? Are you studying for TOEIC or TOEFL? Remember this important point:

We use “even though” to describe a real situation:

  • Even though I waited on line for 2 hours, I could not buy a ticked for the movie.
The real situation is that I did in fact wait on line for 2 hours.

We use “even if” to describe an unreal or imaginary situation:

  • Even if I send her roses and love letters, she will never go on a date with me.

The unreal/imaginary situation is that I did not really send her roses or love letters. I was just imagining doing so.
