Very good!(Im not talking about the joke).
I started learning english listening some songs with this kind of word(Tenacious D).

Dear John, you should make more lessons with some texts ,like that about Clint Eastwood, but showing more pictures… would be FANTASTIC!

    Hi Jon! Funny joke “….1-2-3 for?” HaHaHa. But, next time, do the joke before the lesson, then the explanation. I think, in that way, we are force to think in the meanings…

    Thursday, June 21st 2012

      that’s correct!

      Monday, July 29th 2013

        I didn’t understand the Joke. Anyone tell me.

        Wednesday, January 14th 2015

          What did you say 1 2 3 for

          Saturday, October 31st 2015

    hahahaha ^_^

    Wednesday, July 4th 2012

    Hi Jon:D I didn’t understand your joke from beginning so explanation was very helpful. By the way you suppose to make more similar lessons I’ll think. Thanks a lot for that. =D

    Sunday, September 2nd 2012

    Hi Jon, More jokes and more drawings, please! :)

    Monday, January 6th 2014

Thank you so much!:)

Friday, June 15th 2012

Funny, but not very polite!!
You have the talent to deliver information do not do this nonsense again, / We love you Jon

Friday, June 15th 2012

Extremly unusual way of teaching. But it works. As well as I know even Shakespeare used some dirty jokes.

Friday, June 15th 2012

Friday, June 15th 2012

You are a great teacher in it short time I enjoyed with your classes, I would like receive more information and to be your pupil.

Friday, June 15th 2012

Jon, Please advise the difference between log in and log on as well.

Saturday, June 16th 2012

    Sorry, it is for Alex not Jon.

    Saturday, June 16th 2012

Hi Jon! I did the quiz but I was wrong the second question beacause I answered the 3th (“the number ‘4’ and the preposition ‘for'”) instead of the 2nd… could you explain me why? thanks

Saturday, June 16th 2012

Hahahahahahaha… Very good one Jon!

Saturday, June 16th 2012

I don’t understand. Why does magic powder is called pun

Saturday, June 16th 2012

if u didn’t have the explan after telling the joke, i’d not understanded why u laughing. Nice joke! Hope u have more story like that

Saturday, June 16th 2012

ahahahah funny joke…poor man! ;)

Saturday, June 16th 2012

awww he`s so cute :D

Saturday, June 16th 2012

I’m pretty sure that the answer for question number 2 should be “the number ‘4’ and the preposition ‘for'” and not “the magic powder”.
What do you think?

Saturday, June 16th 2012

    You’re right, Shay. Thanks for letting us know! The quiz is now fixed.

    Saturday, June 16th 2012

You performed better than the main role of the joke. (Ha~ha~)

Sunday, June 17th 2012

hahaha, actually the punchline wasn’t that funny.
but it was useful thank you Jon :)

Sunday, June 17th 2012

Dear Jon,

thank you for the excellent lesson.
I know, what I would like is a probably a bit too much. But could you write the joke in this section?

Thank you in advance.
Take care!


Sunday, June 17th 2012

it’s pretty good joke

Sunday, June 17th 2012

yeah, nice joke, i didn’t get it at the first time, but when you explained at the end the joke meak sense.

Sunday, June 17th 2012

lol !!! good joke !!!

Sunday, June 17th 2012

can you please give us the subtitles of the conversition ??

Sunday, June 17th 2012

    hello Rashid, To have not subtittles is good for improve the listening. But if you have to read for listening, you can have a look on the moovies whith subtittles in your language. It’s a good and funny way too for listening ! Have a good moment with series (that’s the best way for me) !

    Wednesday, November 14th 2012

      i agree with u.

      Saturday, February 2nd 2013

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

The punchline was for, allright this was better lol :)

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

Dear Jon, I am an English teacher from NY having 50 years of experience teaching E. First of all, the story with your joke – is it an introduction to the course? If so, I believe you have killed it right away. What intelligent person will go on listening to the rubbish you presented! I have read the comments before posting mine. How low you should go to please an audience of this sort! Before showing up before a class a teacher MUST prepare himself or herself by at least looking up the definitions of the vocabulary he or she intends to introduce. Then a teacher has to respect the audience by carefully choosing the material, but not present a gross joke. You are more than welcome to respond, I will gladly share with you my ideas. You seem like a nice person. J.T.

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

    I agree with you
    I want you to tell what’s the best way to learn English

    Tuesday, June 19th 2012

    Dear Mrs Tsukerman. I things it’s important for students in E.S.L. to learn other than words on books, to learn tne speaking english. I agree with you when you tell a teacher has to respect… but he or she has to learn different sorts of words, and not only the nice words. Don’t you think students would be more interested in learning with more joke and humor ?

    Wednesday, November 14th 2012

cool.. I loved

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

Praise be to God I do not need shaman

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

It’s very funny. Thank you for making me laugh, hahaha. More than that, I can know more vocabulary that were new to me before. My vocabulary store is bigger a little bit now. I have a lesson after this story: tell your partner not to say or ask anything when performing, hahaha, that is not to waste the only time of the whole year.

It was a great and funny lesson or class.

Thanks for teaching us and give a wonder moment.

Thursday, July 12th 2012

Jon,,I hope u could help me to understand this joke!

I was in Dubai. And there’s a lot of Indians who work in Dubai. And they don’t get paid that well. And I got it in my head that all the Indians there must be workers. And I forgot there’s obviously successful Indians in Dubai as well. I was doing a show, and they said, “We’re going to send a driver to pick you up.” So I went down to the lobby, and I saw this Indian guy. I go, “He’s got to be my driver.” Because he was standing there in like a cheap suit, thin mustache, staring at me. So I went over, “Excuse me, sir, are you my driver?” He goes, “No, sir. I own the hotel.” (Laughter) I go, “I’m sorry. Then why were you staring at me?” He goes, “I thought you were my driver.”

I still don’t get the last point “I thought you were my driver.”

could u explain what does he exactly means??

here is the link to watch so u could better understand it [^_^]

Sunday, July 15th 2012

    just like you thought that he is your driver, He thought that you are his driver lol that’s a funny one

Here is one joke for the women problems at the doctor…

Woman got to the doctor for general examination. Doctor examines eyes, ears, hands, legs and at the end says:
“Now we need to check the small organ that puts women into a lot of trouble.”
Woman starts to undress and doctor says: “What ya doin’ I only want to see your tongue.”

Sunday, August 10th 2014

I would love to hear more jokes from you, it is really funny way to learn, especially the part with explanation of punchline.

Wednesday, September 24th 2014

Personally, I think you told the joke in a funny way.It’s a creative joke even if it’s simple.Such expressions are important to be learned, we’re always using them. As long as we’re not offending people, I think it’s ok. You did warn them. Thanks for the lesson!

Sunday, October 5th 2014

so pity …the man is….

Wednesday, October 22nd 2014

Lol…I really enjoyed this lesson :D.

I’m a bad joke teller myself, but I don’t think you are!. In fact, I would have totally understood the joke even without the explanation mentioned at first.

Sunday, October 26th 2014

I want to kill his wife hahahahaha hahahahahah

Wednesday, November 5th 2014

Thanks dear john for your effort I have learned (or learnt) well … really great job

Saturday, November 15th 2014

That was a great lesson! Very funny! It’s interesting to notice that this jokes works only in English! In my language, Portuguese, for example, it wouldn’t work At all

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

I meant “joke works” and “at all” instead of “At all”.

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

Thanks. It’s really cool to know more about a foreign culture. ;-)
Hint in turn: for russian students you can use the magic word “LOPATA” instead of “punch line”. Be sure, all the russians will natively get it, and they will know exactly when to laugh :-)

Tuesday, February 3rd 2015

The joke is OK, but the suvtitles are wrong. Just listen…

Sunday, March 1st 2015
