Question 1 of 12

When a strong statement is made, the statement is often followed with an example containing “even.” The word “even” adds shock, surprise, or excitement to the example.

Even Though / Even When / Even If

“Even” can be combined with the words “though,” “when” and “if.” It emphasizes that a result is unexpected. Study the following examples and explanations to learn how these expressions differ.


  • Even though John studied very hard, he still failed his English tests.

John always studied hard. But, unfortunately, he failed the tests.

  • Even when John studied very hard, he still failed his English tests.

John occasionally studied hard, but it didn’t really make a difference. Every time he studied, he still failed.

  • Even if John studied very hard, he still failed his English tests.

John didn’t normally study very hard. But in the rare situation when he did try to study hard, he still failed the test.


These expressions are not always interchangeable; the context of the sentence will affect your choice:

“Even though” is used when something is always done or a fact is mentioned.

“Even when” is used when something is occasionally done.

“Even if” is used when something is rarely done or just imagined.

Even So

“Even so” is very much like the word “but” or “however.” “Even so” is different in that it is used with surprising or unexpected results.


She is loud and unfriendly. Even so, I like her.
She is loud and unfriendly, so it is unexpected that I like her.
