08/Oct/29 We Today's EnglishJPN ( even though, even if の使い分け )

Good morning all,
It is sunny but so cold this morning here in Japan. Be careful not to catch a cold!
Here is today's english!
unit 276 
Even though he hates studying and skips virtually
every lecture, he is unwilling to quit school, simply
because he prefers school to work.
( ほとんど(virtually)すべての 講義に欠席している?)
ここで even though ....  。。。にも関わらず  意味で
譲歩文を 作ります.
even if....たとえ。。。でも の 意味で
仮定文を 作ります.
解析上 似ているが,
Even though は ( 事実 )を 述べている ことで,
Even if は あくまでも ( If = 仮定 )を 述べている
と いう点で 違います。
日本語で, 。。。にも 関わらず と 述べたい時は
Even thoughを 使ってみてください。 ( Even if ...)ではなく.
a. Even though he hates studying、 ( 彼が勉強が大嫌い(事実)にも関わらず、 )
b. Even if he hates studying、  ( たとえ 彼が 勉強が 大嫌いかもしれないが(仮定)  )
Have a nice day today with a smile !!!
My motto was always to keep swinging.
Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or
having trouble off the field.the only thing to
do was keep swinging. ( swinng - by baseball player ).

No challenge, No chance!!!
