That would be odd because, although/though/even though we knew about the place, we’d never been there.

What's the correct choice here? And why?

  • Never use "alhought" ... but although or even though are fine. The bare though would sound unusual there, though it would not be wrong.

I am not an English native speaker, but considering your sentence, it would sound odd or unusual to hear though.

I would say that you should use only although or even though.

If you want to use though, your sentence should be different, like:

Though we knew about the place, that would be odd because we'd never been there.

I could be wrong though. :-)
