Although和despite都可以用于表示某些事情出乎意料的情況,但用法搭配不同。Although搭配小句,可与even through,although互换。Despite 搭配名词短语,代词,动名词,可与In spite of despite互换。

1)Although的用法

Although I am only ten, I can do many things by myself.

Although Irvin lost, he wasn’t sad.

Although he has many friends, he is lonely.

Though I am only ten, I can do many things by myself.

2)Despite的用法

Despite my age, I can do many things by myself.

Despite the loss, Irvin wasn’t sad.

Despite being only ten, I can do many things by myself.

Despite having many friends, he is lonely.

In spite of my age, I am able to do many things by myself.
