請注意,“even” 後面是 “if” 或 “though” 很重要。

“Even if” 有「即使」的意思:
Even if he doesn't like me, I will still treat him fairly.
(即使他不喜歡我,我還是會公平地來對待他)
(我不知道他喜不喜歡我,但不管怎樣我還是要對他公平)

“Even though” 有「雖然」的意思:
Even though he doesn't like me, I will still treat him fairly.
(雖然他不喜歡我,但是我還是會以公平的方式來對待他)
(我知道他不喜歡我,但我還是要對他公平)

單獨的 “even” 跟 “even if” 和 “even though” 的意思很不一樣:
Even our dog doesn't like me.
(連我們家的狗都不喜歡我)
(牠不喜歡我,別人也不喜歡我)
"Even if" and "even though" are very different from just plain "even."
