ALTHOUGH और THOUGH, इन दोनों शब्दों का प्रयोग किन्ही दो वाक्यों या किसी वाक्य के दो भागों के बीच contrast यानी फर्क दिखाने के लिए किया जाता है ।

The English language has a group of words called CONJUNCTIONS that are used to connect clauses or sentences. Let me explain how.

Without conjunction: I like cooking. I like eating.
With conjunction: I like cooking and eating.
Here, ‘and’ is the conjunction that joins the two sentences. In a way, 
Conjunctions can also be called as linking words.
Although and Though, both are part of this group.

Differences Between ALTHOUGH and THOUGH.

content-min

Well, there aren’t many. देखा जाए तो ‘although’ और ‘though’ के बीच बहुत ज़्यादा फर्क नही है।
As conjunctions, both the words are interchangeable as both mean the same i.e. ‘in spite of something’. 

But then, English is a tricky language and hence, there are a few minor differences between the two words such as:
• Although tends to be more formal than though.
• One can use ‘even though’ to put more emphasis but one should never use ‘even’ with ‘although’. 
• ‘Although’ can be used at the beginning or in the middle of the sentence but not at the end of a sentence. ‘Though’ is more flexible.

आसान शब्दों में कहा जाए तो ALTHOUGH और THOUGH का हिंदी में अर्थ है हालांकि, मगर, भले ही, यद्यपि । इन दोनों शब्दों के बीच का confusion दूर करने का सबसे बेहतर तरीका है वाक्य में इनका प्रयोग करना सीखना।
Let’s see some examples now:

ALTHOUGH

To express the ideas of contrast ( विपरीत विचार व्यक्त करने के लिए )
Although his father was a king, Sam was brought up like a common man’s son.
• हालांकि उसके पिता एक राजा थे, Sam को एक आम आदमी के बेटे की तरह पाला गया।
Although Amit has a car, he doesn’t know how to drive one.
• हालाँकि अमित के पास गाड़ी है, उसे driving करनी नहीं आती।
 
To be used in place of ‘but’ (‘लेकिन’ के स्थान पर इस्तेमाल करना )
• Certainly this could happen, although the possibilities are remote.
• निश्चित रूप से यह हो सकता है, हालांकि संभावनाओं दूरस्थ हैं।
• They will get married this year, although the date has not been decided yet.
• वे इस साल शादी करेंगे, हालांकि तारीख अभी तक तय नहीं की गयी है।

THOUGH

To express contrast
•  Though I liked the sweater, I did not buy it.
• हालांकि मुझे स्वेटर पसंद आया, मैंने उसे नहीं ख़रीदा।

Note: The same sentence can be said/written with ‘though’ at the end and it would not change the meaning.

I liked the sweater. I decided not to buy it, though.

Though they were talking in undertones, I could hear them.
• हालांकि वे धीमी आवाज़ में बात कर रहे थे, मैं उन्हें सुन सकता था।


To be used with ‘even’ (अपनी बात पर ज़ोर देने के लिए )

•  Even though you don’t like her, you should try to be nice to her.
•  भले ही आप उसे पसंद नहीं करते, आपको उसके साथ अच्छा बन कर रहना चाहिए।
•  I wore my coat, even though it wasn’t very cold outside.
•  मैंने अपना coat पहन लिया, भले ही बाहर ज़्यादा ठण्ड नही थी ।

NOTE: Even though is a stronger form of although.

To be used with ‘as’
As though = As if = जैसे की, मानो 
• He behaved as though/as if nothing has happened.
•  उसने ऐसे व्यवहार किया जैसे कि कुछ हुआ ही नहीं है।
• She ran so fast as though/as if she was being chased by a ghost.
• वह इतनी तेज़ी से भागी, मानो उसके पीछे भूत लग गया हो।

उम्मीद है की आगे से आप इन दोनों conjunctions के बीच confuse नहीं होंगे।
