How to use THOUGH correctly | Intermediate/Advanced English Grammar

487 ratings | 7831 views
Learn how to use "though" correctly. This is a word that native speakers use very frequently, so it's important that you know how to use it! Intermediate to advanced English grammar. 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 Help more people understand this lesson by contributing subtitles in your own language! Click here: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_video?ref=player&v=k-O2tmFJTD0 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Note on commas and "though": 1. When the though/although clause (part of the sentence) comes before the main clause, we normally put a comma at the end of the clause. When the main clause comes first, we do not need to use a comma. For example: Though it was cold outside, I went for a walk. I went for a walk though it was cold. Although I had barely slept, I passed the exam. I passed the exam although I had barely slept. 2. When it is used before an adjective in a reduced clause, you should put a comma after and before (if applicable) the clause. For example: Though small, the cat can run fast. (after) The cat, though small, can run fast. (before and after) Although very interested, Ryan didn't show any emotion during the presentation. (after) Ryan, although very interested, didn't show any emotion during the presentation. (before and after) 3. When "though" comes at the end of a sentence or after "thanks" or "thank you", you should put a comma before it. For example: I don't like cooking. I like eating, though. I've already had some. Thanks, though. I don't need it. Thank you, though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For more English lessons, visit my channel, English with Max.

Hey there how are you, Max? please help me. In this sentence: I don't like cooking. I like eating, though. Is it compulsory to put a comma before though? thank you.
English with Max (2 months ago)
Hi there! A lot of native speakers don't do it, but it's considered more correct. 😉 It's what you will see in books, for example.

hi teacher I have a question! a few weeks ago, I asked another English teacher what's difference between but and though as an adverb but he didn't answer clearly. he said "I said Almost the same haha. They are the same in meaning but the funtion and use is a little different for the reasons I stated in this post....mostly" could you explain the difference clearly? because I want to use them correctly like native thank you!
English with Max (2 months ago)
I don't think I can explain them more clearly than I did in this video... Although it's true that I don't discuss "but" very much in this video. Basically, sometimes they mean the same thing, but in that case, we put "but" at the beginning of a clause and we put "though" at the end. In this video I discuss "but": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5UhX10blQ4

I hope so!

Again, my high school English teacher taught me that Despite is a preposition so a noun or an equivalent to noun should follow it. Though is a conjunction connecting clauses. I haven't learned English grammar after since high school. You are as awesome as my old English teacher. I am from Dail High School in South Korea. I graduated in 1984.
English with Max (8 months ago)
Thank you very much for saying so! I'm glad it brought back fond memories :).

Tikus241 (1 year ago)
Very good, max. Too many people still use but at the end of a sentence instead of though.
English with Max (1 year ago)
I know!
Sanjay Lohia (1 year ago)
Max, very innovative videos, and your sense of humour is great. When I first starting watching your videos, I thought you were making a lot of unnecessary facial movements, but now I just enjoy your videos. Thanks.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Well, if I was receiving 100s of comments every day, I'm sure I wouldn't be able to... But at the moment, I do my best!
Sanjay Lohia (1 year ago)
I listen to or watch quite a few English lessons on YouTube, but very few teachers reply to the comments as frequently and as promptly as you do. So thanks a lot...
English with Max (1 year ago)
Both are correct, and both are used frequently :).
Sanjay Lohia (1 year ago)
Thanks. Max, which one of the following expression is correct or more common: 1) Let's have a listen to the songs or 2) Let's listen to the songs? I have heard a native speaker use the first expression, but to me, the second one looks more correct. What do you say?
English with Max (1 year ago)
I agree! And I actually considered doing a video on that because lots of people don't know how to use them, including native speakers. I also make mistakes with them ;).
Moumous Miller (1 year ago)
Really enjoyed the video ! You said you can leave a different comment if you want so let me tell you that the dress you wore looks good on you hhhhh J'espère te revoir bientôt avec une nouvelle vidéo ma belle !
English with Max (1 year ago)
It's actually a top, but thank you very much! :)
dmartinfpro (1 year ago)
I don't want to have children, but I like having sex with women though xD (pls correct)
English with Max (1 year ago)
Almost correct! ;) *I don't want to have children, I like having sex with women, though. (You can use either "but" or "though", but not both.)
Leo Touriste (1 year ago)
Hi Max Very interesting ! Please, could you explain the difference beetween : to slide and to slip? Thanks a lot
English with Max (1 year ago)
Yes, that's more or less it. "To slide" can sometimes be involuntary as well, but if you fall or lose your balance, it's definitely "slip" :).
Leo Touriste (1 year ago)
English with Max yes, if I understand you: To slide is a volontary action as skiing but to slip is made by accident as falling on slippery mudy path You are right, I am french and to slide and to slip are the same word in french....glisser. Thanks for your answer
English with Max (1 year ago)
Are you a French speaker? Am I right in thinking you use "glisser" for both?
English with Max (1 year ago)
Good question, and not very easy to answer ;). Both involve continuous movement over a smooth surface, but "slip" is normally used if the movement is an accident and results in a fall or loss of balance. Does that make sense?
EmeritusE (1 year ago)
Though I've spoken english all of my life, I still enjoy watching these videos. I'm certain many benefit from these lessons. Thanks for the refresher! =)
EmeritusE (1 year ago)
Yes! That seems to the case for me as well. I've experienced quite a few of those, "Ooooh yeah, that's right!" moments myself too. =)
English with Max (1 year ago)
Oh, I see. Well, I'm glad you're enjoying them! Some Australian friends sometimes watch my videos as well, and they said it was because there are lots of things that you don't actually think about it when it's your native language :).
EmeritusE (1 year ago)
That's actually a very good question. I'm really not 100% certain as to exactly how but one of your videos had appeared in my suggestions box and I decided to watch. I found your commentary and sense of humor most enjoyable and I've been a subscriber ever since. I believe the first video I watched was regarding household tools.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Haha, my pleasure! And thanks! If you don't mind my asking, how did you stumble across my channel?
Thomas Schmitt (1 year ago)
Yeah but that backflip tho.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Haha, oh I see :).
Thomas Schmitt (1 year ago)
Its from a viral "Vine-Video". I think you can find it on Youtube. There is a guy who wants to stop a robber and fails, but he does a great backflip :)

The clearest lesson about this topic so far... Thanks 😘 😘
English with Max (1 year ago)
I'm happy you find them useful! :)
I just suscribed. Useful lessons you teach..and with all due respect, you are beautiful
English with Max (1 year ago)
Thank you for your comment! I'm very happy to hear that, because this is a difficult topic to explain and I rewrote parts of the lesson a few times!
Thank you!! Your videos are very helpful. I heard someone saying this sentence: Really, though? I’ve got confused about the meaning. Have you ever heard this one?
English with Max (1 year ago)
Oh I see! I'm always flattered when other English teachers watch my videos :). I'm happy I could help!
English with Max yeah! It makes sense. Although I agree with you: really is enough. Thank you again!! I’m a teacher in Brazil for beginners and intermediate and sometimes teenagers bring these challenges to me. 😮🙂 You really helped! 😘
English with Max (1 year ago)
I'm happy to hear that! 😀 I admit I had to think about your question a little bit. Yes, people say that sometimes to show surprise or disbelief. Example: A: He says he has enough money to buy three houses. B: Really, though? I thought he could barely afford his rent. It's like saying: "But really?" Normally, however, you can just say: "Really?" I hope that makes sense!
Max your classes are wonderful, you're fantastic have a beautiful week bye
English with Max (1 year ago)
Many thanks! Have a nice week as well!

Littel-bittel difficult for my level
English with Max (1 year ago)
Don't worry, this is relatively advanced. Just keep studying/practising and one day it will be easy!
Ulghart (1 year ago)
Thanks for the video Max. I already knew how to use it but it's always good to refresh it. I've noticed that Americans use it a lot at the end of their phrases, and sometimes I have problems identifying the real meaning of it. I think at some point they use it more like a cliche. Am I right?
English with Max (1 year ago)
Yes, revision is always good :). I wouldn't say it's a cliche, but there are some people who perhaps use it too often.
esm325 (1 year ago)
I'm seeing you are again in the room were is not so hot. I have read you have the height of summer now and January is the hottest month in Australia. Especially this year.
English with Max (1 year ago)
Yes, it was very hot for about a week! Thankfully it's cooled down a bit now (23 degrees) ;).

Hi Max, Perfect lesson. Please keep it up and kindly make more advanced lessons. I expected u would speak about the comma when we start the sentence with the subordinating conjunction. You mentioned it as a written comment why u didn't speak about it, though. ☺👍 By the way, may u kindly correct this sentence if there are any mistakes in it? "He is the ever best French teacher on YouTube", and if it possible to kindly do a lesson about the proper usage for the word "ever" and it's different meanings. Regards, Ahmad,
English with Max (1 year ago)
Thank you very much! I didn't include the part on commas because I know some people are less interested in the small details than others. I also didn't want to make the video too long! Only one small correction 😀: He is the best French teacher ever on YouTube. That's a very good idea for a video! I'll add it to the list!
Juan das Neves Soares (1 year ago)
Though: malgré Even: malgré tout Could be something like that?
Juan das Neves Soares (1 year ago)
Sorry, "even though"?
English with Max (1 year ago)
I think it's more like this: malgré = despite malgré tout = despite everything, all the same though = cependant, mais, bien que even (in this context) = même
Thank you very much for this lesson.
English with Max (1 year ago)
You're welcome!
