|Смотри вперед – учи английский!|
Английский - весело!
Изучение языка, кроме очевидной пользы, может и должно доставлять удовольствие. Мы читаем книжки, поем песни и, конечно, пытаемся шутить на языке Уайльда, Бернарда Шоу, Джерома, Вудхауза и других великих английских юмористов. Не отказываемся и от незатейливых бытовых шуток, лимериков, анекдотов. Словом:
If you haven’t got anything to do don’t do it here!
"Hey, guess what — the mother-in-law's gone missing!"
"No kidding? Have you given her description to the police?"
"They'd never believe me!"

They say that once the famous American dancer Isadora Dunkan wrote to George Bernard Shaw and suggested:"We two ought to have a child, so it could inherit my beauty and your brains."

"Your methods of cultivation are hopelessly out of date," said the youthful college graduate to the old farmer. "Why, I'd be astonished if you got even ten pounds of apples from that tree."
"So would I," said the farmer. "It's a pear tree."
It’s terrible to see men looking like girls with long hair and all. You can’t tell the difference. I was sitting in a restaurant when a girl came in. I turned to the person at the next table and said, “Isn’t it terrible how boys look like girls these days?”
“That’s my son,” she said, pointing to the girl.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were the mother.”
“I’m not,” my neighbor said indignantly. “I’m the father.”
