  • in this video, I am going to talk about too similar and sometimes confusing english words, fun and funny.

  • My students always confuse these two words.

  • So I hope to clarify their meanings and usage in this video and by the end of the video you will have mastered these two words.

  • So keep watching.

  • Mhm Let's start with the word fun.

  • It is an uncountable noun or an adjective.

  • It means pleasure and enjoyment.

  • Let's take a look at some examples.

  • The first sentence says, I hope you have fun in this case it's an uncountable noun.

  • It's something that you can have.

  • It means a good time.

  • I hope you have fun means I hope you have a good time studying.

  • English is fun in this case fun is used as an adjective, it means an enjoyable time studying.

  • English is an enjoyable time or it's very enjoyable.

  • Now I will talk about funny, it's an adjective which means causing laughter.

  • We don't use funny to mean enjoyable.

  • So fun and funny are a little different in meaning.

  • So be careful.

  • Let's look at some example sentences he told a funny joke.

  • This joke is meant to be funny.

  • It's meant to make people laugh and so we describe it as funny.

  • Now let's do a checkup in this conversation.

  • We should use fun and in the other sentence we should use funny.

  • Take a moment to think about where we use fun and funny person A says did you have blank at the circus?
