Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Laughing Matters is a resource book dealing with humour in the language classroom. It provides over 120 activities which will inject some light-hearted fun into lessons whilst still being grounded in respected language learning theory. Jokes provide teachers with a rich resource of patterned language use and cultural knowledge. Humour is also a very effective way to help students remember key concepts and structures. Humour can be one of the hardest aspects of a foreign language for students to understand; yet it is also one of the most rewarding. This book provides support for teachers in the form of background information on humour and step-by-step guidance on how to carry out the activities and suggestions for further work. It will be of particular interest to teachers who are non-native speakers and may need some confidence-building before using humour in the language classroom.
