The Chinese word “即使” is often translated as “even if” or “even though”. It is used to express a hypothetical situation, where something may or may not be true, but regardless of the outcome, a particular action or circumstance will still occur. For example, “即使下雨，我还是要去” means “Even if it rains, I still have to go”.
