Although - even though, learning how to use them

What will I learn from the English lesson although - Even though?

During this lesson you will learn the small difference between the words although and even though.  The final part of the lesson is a list of examples of how to use them in sentences.

What is the difference between the two words?

Although and even though can be used in the same way. They both basically mean the same thing. However, “even though” is more emphatic.

The order of the clauses can be reversed. If the first clause in the sentence begins with “although” or “even though”, then you must use a comma.

Should the second clause in a sentence begin with “although” or “even though”, then there is no need for a comma.
