Hi, I’m Phil from BBC Learning English, and today I’m going to tell you how to use the words fun and funny…
They're 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 that we enjoy
So – I think going out with friends is fun – watching football is fun, practising English is fun… it is, isn’t it?
Now the main use of funny is…. Something that makes you laugh.
Jokes make you laugh, comedy films make you laugh – people make you laugh.
So, if it makes you happy – it’s fun and If it makes you laugh – it’s funny.
