  • And in this video, we will be talking  about the difference between fun and funny

  • Now, my students are always  getting these two words confused

  • And today, we are going to fix that problem. Let's look at the board

  • Our first word is 'fun'. Now, 'fun' can be used as an adjective or a noun

  • It means you enjoy yourself  and you have a good time

  • Maybe you go to the pool friends on a nice day. You had a good time

  • You had fun. Let's look at our second word, 'funny'. 

  • 'funny' has two meanings. And it can be used as an adjective

  • The first meaning is, it makes you laugh. Hahaha 

  • Okay. Your friend tells a funny  joke and the joke is funny

  • Okay. Our second, less commonmeaning is it's strange

  • They both mean the same thing. That I had a good time

  • Next, 'funny' has a different meaning. John was funny
