The Mandarin Chinese phrase '尽管...但是... (jǐnguǎn... dànshì...)' is equivalent to 'although... but...' in English. This structure is used to express how despite a certain circumstance, fact, or condition given in the initial clause, the outcome in the following clause contrasts with it. The '尽管 (jǐnguǎn)' signifies 'despite' or 'although' and '但是 (dànshì)' introduces the contrasting outcome or thought.
