An African Adventure - Learn English Faster with Laughter

Vote on the funniness of this joke: http://linguaspectrum.com/an-african-...
This is an old joke, but a very funny one, nevertheless.
Its humour comes from the sudden realisation that what we immediately assume to be the truth is sometimes not.
In British English, trainers refer to running shoes, which are known as sneakers in American English.

Hares and Hairs - Learn English Faster with Laughter

source: Britlish - Linguaspectrum      2015年12月22日
Vote for the funniness of this joke: http://linguaspectrum.com/hare-and-hair/
The humour in this video comes from the fact that the two homophones, hare and hair, are pronounced exactly the same.
Hairs are what you have on top of your head, unless you are bald like Tony.
Hares are animals that look like large rabbits.
A head full of rabbits might indeed look like a full head of hares, especially from a distance.
Unfortunately for Tony, it will never look like a full head of hair.
If you find yourself going bald, don't make the same mistake as Tony. Try a toupee or a wig instead.

Learn English Faster with Laughter - Step On It

source: Britlish - Linguaspectrum      2015年12月20日
How funny is this joke? Vote for it at http://linguaspectrum.com/step-on-it/
Humour is a great way to learn and remember English vocabulary like phrasal verbs, especially when the humour is presented in a very memorable way. I don't think you will get a more memorable presentation of the phrasal verb "step on" than this animated English joke.

The phrasal verb, step on, has a literal meaning and an idiomatic meaning.
The literal meaning is to place one's foot on something.
The waiter literally stepped on the steak.
What Captain Britlish meant was the idiomatic meaning of to go faster.
When you step on the accelerator in a car it goes faster. From this we get, "Step on it!".
The humour in this jokes comes from the two different meanings of the phrasal verb step on.
So, the next time you are in a restaurant, in a hurry, don't ask for your meal like Captain Britlish did.
I'd like a steak please, and step on it.

How to Say the Elements in English

source: Britlish - Linguaspectrum      2015年12月9日
The chemical elements that make it possible for you and I to exist were forged in the super-hot, super-pressurised hearts of long-dead stars.
The light of the sun and the twinkling of the stars result from the intense nuclear fusion reactions raging within.
Stellar fusion is the crucible of nucleosynthesis, the fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium, helium into carbon, carbon into nitrogen, and so on through ever heavier elements.
When the fusion of elements can no longer keep a star inflated, the mass of all the elements it contains collapses in on itself.
Super-massive stars collapse in supernovas and scatter the heaviest elements, up to plutonium, across space.
The early universe was made up only of the lightest elements hydrogen and helium.
Over billions of years, countless supernovas scattered heavier elements across space.
Some of these elements formed our solar system and the planet we call home, and from these elements all life arose.
We are, literally, made of the dust of stars – the elements we find in the periodic table of elements.
Most of us know the names of some elements like hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, silver, gold, and uranium, but there are 118 elements currently known to science.
I learnt the names of many of the elements in Chemistry classes at school, and the other day I tried to see how many of them I could remember.
hydrogen helium lithium beryllium boron carbon nitrogen oxygen fluorine…
And then I got stuck, and decided that it would be fun to make a Little Bit of Britlish about the periodic table of elements.
The project would give me the chance to remember the names of the elements.
It would also give me the opportunity to make sure that my students never mispronounced the name of any chemical element in English.
The eBook, The Periodic Table of Elements, is now available at Britlish.com.
It is a PDF eBook containing over 6000 words on 46 pages with over 123 embedded audio files.
It also has an interactive periodic table of elements.
You can click on any element to hear it pronounced with a British accent.
You will also see an IPA transcription and read some comparative and superlative sentences about the element.
There are comparative and superlative exercises in the eBook, too, to give you some practice in using these in English.
Visit Britlish and get your copy of this Little Bit of Britlish and refresh your memory of the elements on my periodic table.

# How About ?
“How about?” is used to suggest an action and to “open” different possibilities:
Example : How about a vacation to Singapore?
Example : How about applying for that job at the bank?

# What About?
“What about?” is used to mention an objection or a potential problem:
Example : What about my English class that falls on the same time?
Example : What about your dog?

# There are cases wherein ‘What about?’ & ‘How about?’ can be used interchangeably, that’s when you are asking about what someone is doing or feeling.
Example :
“How have you been?”
“Good – a little busy with school. How about you?”
“Where do you work?”
“At the local university. What about you?”
--In this case, How about you? and What about you? are asking the same question back to the other person.
