    Although / in spite of / despite


    Although / in spite of / despite

     

     

    After although we use a subject + verb:

     

    Although it rained a lot, we enjoyed our holiday.

    • I didn't get the job although I had all the necessary qualifications.

     

    Compare the meaning of although and because:

    • We went out although it was raining.

    • We didn't go out because it was raining.

     

    After in spite of or despite, we use a noun, a pronoun (this/that/what etc.) or -ing:

    In spite of the rain, we enjoyed our holiday.

    • I didn't get the job in spite of having all the necessary qualifications.

    • She wasn't well, but in spite of this she went to work.

    In spite of what I said yesterday, I still love you.

     

    Despite is the same as in spite of. Note that we say 'in spite of, but despite (without 'of'):

    • She wasn't well, but despite this she went to work, (not 'despite of this')

     

    You can say 'in spite of the fact (that)...' and 'despite the fact (that)...':

     

    I didn’t get the job in spite of the fact that I had all the necessary qualifications

    I didn’t get the job despite the fact (that) I had all the necessary qualifications.

     

    Compare in spite of and because of:

    • We went out in spite of the rain, (or ...despite the rain.)

    • We didn't go out because of the rain.

     

    Compare although and in spite of / despite:

    Although the traffic was bad. I arrived on time. (not in spite of the traffic was bad)

    In spite of the traffic, I arrived on time. (not in spite of the traffic was bad)

     

    I couldn’t sleep although I was very tired (not despite I was tired)

    I couldn’t sleep despite being very tired (not despite I was tired)

     



    Complete the sentences with although / in spite of / because / because of.
