Pun-ny for Your Thoughts: The Art of Word Play

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Pun-ny For Your Thoughts is entirely in English, but its activities and techniques could be applied in any language.
For example, she goes over different strategies for pun creation (word lists, expanding to broader categories, singling out one syllable or matching a whole word) and activities (different kinds of pun battles, secret puns, rhyme games etc.) that could easily be modified for different languages.
French or other language teachers are welcome to join and learn about strategies they could apply in different languages / classes, but none of the content itself is in another language.
