Product description

The book 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. Using humour in the classroom is also a very effective way to help students remember key concepts and structures. This book provides teachers with useful background information on humour. There is also step-by-step guidance on how to carry out the activities in the classroom and suggestions for further work. Laughing Matters will be of particular interest to teachers who are nonnative speakers and may appreciate some confidence building before using humour in the language classroom.
