dad jokes. These jokes are a great way to learn English because they are based on pronunciation, puns, and vocabulary. You’ll hear five simple dad jokes along with explanations. I’ll also go over the vocabulary in detail so you can really master some new vocabulary. Take the quiz, and practice speaking by telling these jokes to your family and friends. Most importantly, continue having fun with your English!
Very good, Alex!) Jokes are funny :D Thank you!!!
Any time! Thanks for clicking.
His joke really good!
Hahaha .. old jokes
Very good Alex! Thank you :)
Now I know more five. :)
More three jokes maybe you like:
– What travels around the world and stays in a corner ?
– A stamp.
– What is the longest word in the English language ?
– SMILES: there is a mile between the first and last letters!
– What starts with E, ends with E and only has one letter ?
– An envelope.
Funny jokes :)
hhhhh I like them but the last one I didn’t understand it
– “starts with E” –> Envelope
– “ends with E” –> envelopE
– “and only has one letter”
In English “letter” means:
1) A character representing one or more of the sounds used in speech; any of the symbols of an alphabet.
2) A written, typed, or printed communication, especially one sent in an envelope by mail or messenger.
The joke plays with the dual meaning :)
Haha. I’ve heard all of these before. I like the third one.
hahaha nice lesson Alex!!!
Thanks a lot ;)

Hi Alex! This is the funniest of your lessons. In the beginning it was not entirely clear, but after explaining I had a long laugh. Thank you.
Haha. Thanks! I’m glad you liked it!
Hy Alex I would be glad if you could answer my question below
Hope you are doing well
I would be glad if you could tell me what is the exact meaning of this sentence in English the sentence is ” was it a bad day or was it a bad five minutes that you milked all day ”
I exactly wanna know the meaning in what case do people use such this sentence and why for? Thanks in advance
I will impatiently be waitting for your answer
Hello Mehdi, I found on the website: http://www.wordreference.com/ the meaning of the verb “to milk”. It means extract milk or in slang: to tire. They give this example: “the boss milked his employees for every drop of energy they have” I bet Alex will find the meaning of your sentence.
May be have you seen the comment of Rebecca about the sentence: ” was it a bad five minutes that you milked all day ”. She has perfectly explained the different meanings of the verb milk.Thank you for helping the others to improve English.
Don’t mention that
Yeah we should try to improve English
But does Rebecca have answered my question?
I have not seen any answer for my question yet
On Rebecca’s lesson: “because or because of you have the answer.
To milk” literally means to squeeze milk from an animal like a cow, but figuratively it can mean to pressure someone for something, or to over-use something. For example, a cop might “milk” a suspect for information, or a comedian might “milk” a joke until it’s no longer funny. A common idiom is “milking it for attention”—exaggerating something to get people to pay attention to you. Have you ever seen a little child fall over and cry even though it’s not really hurt, because it wants its parents to fuss over it? “A bad five minutes that you milked all day” implies that you only had a short bad experience, but you let it ruin your day because you felt sorry for yourself.
This isn’t an idiom or a figure of speech—I had to Google it. It’s an inspirational quote—kind of like a proverb or saying, but newer (though we don’t usually know where it came from). It’s the kind of thing people pass around on social media because it motivates them to feel better.
Hope this helps!f”
By the way
I would be glad if you could tell me a little about the language psychology at teaching
also give me a hand by expressing some english teaching methods,how a teacher/constructor could properly motivate students to talk
by the way this is mehdi form iran-tehran
How could we work with kids and motivate them to learn
Is that useful just work on their grammar or should we encourage them to talk at the same time
Hi Medhi. sure ! speaking is better for kids . They wiil learn grammar in using and making sentences . At fist saying some things about language and usage of that second language is good but speaking with them is more important than other things. I hope it will help you.
Thank you Alex! Your jokes are very funny!
I have one for you.
What did the frog say when the librarian showed him a book?
Thanks and sorry if my question are so long still a lot to ask:-)

I asked my mom all of these jokes, and she thought all of them were trick questions! :D
Dracula’s wife, Elisabeta, couldn’t sleep because her husband (then known as Vlad Palovnik) was out, slaying Turks. These few nights they were together weren’t spent on sleeping.

It’s not fair!)) Dad jokes sounds like “bad jokes”! Though in reality dad jokes is like dark humor much more frequently, isn’t it?))
Dad jokes are basically bad jokes. Dark humour is something else. :)

Merci pour cette leçon Alex. C’est tout à fait le genre de blagues “pourries” qui nous amusent avec mon adolescent de petit-fils. Je vais donc les retenir en français.
Hi Alex thank you a lot……..it’s always a great pleasure to watch your videos
this one was very funny !!
i’ve just told these jokes to my kids……but they have been chasing me for almost one mile :)!
i don’t understand, the second one especially sounds to me really cool
Some of them are pretty good. It depends how you tell it. The Beethoven one is fun to say.
My friend haven’t laughed… :(
Tell them they need to get a sense of humour!
before reading subs I had thought that Dracula’s wife coudn’t fall asleep because of “caffeine” not “coughing”.
how good it is to learn English in a funny way!
:D shelfish was funny
These are good jokes… to learn English :)
Indeed, playing with words pronunciation and double meaning is funny and sometimes gives good jokes.
Some mistakes with pronunciation also results in irreverent and memorable situations.
One day, when I was in Toronto, I wanted to buy some knitting wool balls, which my mom asked for. Then, I found a person in a street and I asked to him:
– Where can I find a [wul] store?
I had spoken with a somewhat British pronunciation for wool, which I’ve learnt somewhere. The gentle person, with a confused face expression, then interrogated me, using the Canadian/American pronunciation.
I replied, because I couldn’t understand.
And then, again, that person, not so paciently.
After some barkings between us. We went each one to one direction, upset… But I eventually found a store… and learnt the different pronunciations.
By the way, you are a good actor!
Thanks, Fabio! I enjoyed making this video. I’m not sure about my accent in some of the sections, though. Haha.
I enjoyed your jokes. I was kidding in the above message.
About the possible accents concerning the word “wool”, the mistake was mine. Lack of proper preparation. And your pronunciation and accent is very clear!
Thanks again and have a nice day!
Why number 6 is afraid of 7?. Because 7 , 8, 9!!! Chan!
Ik it dude but it is pretty cool!
You can say: “Why 9 is afraid of 7” it is,… maybe better! Cuz 9 is a bigger than 7(the price) but 9 scared 7! XD

What are pop-tart and date (food)?
Pop tarts are an American brand of breakfast pastry that you re-heat in the toaster. The date is a sweet, sticky, olive-sized fruit that comes from the Middle East and North Africa. Dried dates are a very common baking ingredient here.
Jokes were pretty bad, but you talking with the doll was hilarious :D
