⭕ Laugh & Learn English Through Jokes ⭕
Learning a new language can be tough, but there are certain techniques that you can follow to learn any language. There is no magical way to learn a language, but some hard work and practice and you’ll be fluent in no time.
Jokes are an essential part of the English language and culture. If you really want to understand English, it will help if you’re able to understand the jokes that people tell in English!
Why Jokes are the funniest way to learn English?
Jokes, apart from being funny, have some special features that make them a very useful material to learn English because:
1- Jokes are micro stories that don’t require a lot of time to be read.
2- You learn a lot about the culture of a language or country through their jokes.
3- Jokes are easy sentences that help you to understand the English grammar (Sentence structures, Tenses…).
4- You are going to learn new vocabulary.
5- You can look for jokes on a specific topic in order to learn vocabulary of a specific field (Medicine, Marketing…).
6- You are going to learn informal English and slang that it’s difficult to find in other kind of English materials.
Look for books, comics, magazines, websites or any other material about jokes and enjoy them while improving your English reading skill. As I said before jokes are a perfect reading material when you are short of time.
Two men are out hiking. All of a sudden, a bear starts chasing them. They climb a tree, but the bear starts climbing up the tree after them. The first man gets his trainers out of his knapsack and starts putting them on. The second man says, “What are you doing?” The first man says, “I reckon when the bear gets close to us, we’ll jump down and make a run for it.” The second man says, “Are you crazy? You can’t outrun a bear.” The first man says, “I don’t have to outrun the bear, I only have to outrun you!”
