Q: discourage と frustrate はどう違いますか?
A: "discourage" is to try to prevent someone from doing something. but, it also has the implication that you are only trying, not necessarily being successful at preventing them from doing it. "discourage" is the opposite of "encourage," which is to make something more attractive or easier to do.

The main implication of "frustrate" is to cause feelings of discouragement, annoyance, or lack of fulfillment by hindering or preventing someone from doing something. But one definition of "frustrate" is very similar to "discourage."

"I put a low fence around my garden to discourage the dogs from digging."
"The fence frustrated the dogs, because they wanted to dig in my garden."

"disheartened" is similar to "discouraged." "disheartened" means that someone has been made sad or depressed. "frustrated" implies more that they are annoyed or upset.

i would say that "dishearten" as a transitive verb ("to dishearten somebody") is rare, though.

you should try posting a couple of sentences with each word to ask if they sound natural or not.
