"Despite" is a preposition; and "although", "though", and "however" are conjunctions. They are not adverbs. (Although "however" = "n'importe comment" is an adverb.)

Hello

Although / though / even though / 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 or the traffic was bad

In spite of the traffic, I arrived on time ( not in spite or 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)
Sometimes we use though instead of although:
• I didn't get the job though I had all the necessary qualifications.
spoken English we often use though at the end of a sentence:
• The house isn't very nice. I like the garden though. (= but I like the garden)
• I see him every day. I've never spoken to him though. (= but I've never spoken to him)
Even though (but not 'even' alone) is a stronger form of although:
Even though I was really tired, I couldn’t sleep. (not even I was really tired)

although = bien que
however = cependant
though = pourtant, cependant (mais avec un sens plus simple, plutôt comme "mais")
despite = malgré
in spite of = en dépit de
