Fun vs Funny
Hi! I'm Phil from BBC Learning English. Today, I'm going to tell you how to use the words FUN and FUNNY.
The both words we use to talk about happy things. But they don't mean the same thing.
So we use fun to talk about things we enjoy.
So I think going out with friends is fun. Watching football is fun. Practising English is fun. It isn't?
Now I main use funny is something that makes you laugh.
Jokes make you laugh (are funny). Comedy films make you laugh (are funny). People make you laugh (are funny).
So if it makes you happy, it's fun. And things make you laugh? It's funny.
And now at the comment, tell us what you think is fun and what you think is funny?
