They say "laughter is the best medicine" so this week we took to the topic of humor: sense of humor, jokes, cultural differences in humor, embarrassing stories. Listening: Learners can check out an episode from the BBC's six minute English called What Makes Us Laugh? or listen to some jokes for English students.
For original version read satirical news site The Onion, or something by David Sedaris. Writing: This week, write about something funny! You could try to write some jokes, or write an essay about a humorous, embarrassing or absurd situation you have been in.
