Do you really think that it is really difficult to learn English language? Well, technically it isn’t, but because there are lots of things to consider when learning it, most of its words seem to get to so complicated for learning. Honestly, I am thankful that English today is considered to be the most common language almost everyone are fluent with it. Otherwise, I would agree the italic statement above.

The difficulty of learning this language doesn’t really hinder learners from learning it. Instead, it becomes a very effective way of transforming it into a funny language at all. Yes, English is a funny language due to its little difficulties and complications. You want to know why? Care to read a portion of the following funny English poems below.

English Pronunciation

Dearest creature in creation,

Studying English pronunciation.

I will teach you in my verse

Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.

It will keep you, Susy, busy,

Make your head with heat grow dizzy.

Tear in eye, your dress will tear.

So shall I! Oh, hear my prayer.

Pray console your loving poet,

Make my coat look new, dear, sew it.

Scholar, vicar and cigar;

Solar, mica, war and far;

From desire-desirable; admirable from admire;

Lumber, plumber; bier but brier;

Chatham, brougham; renown but known;

Knowledge, done but gone and tone:

One, anemone, Balmoral;

Kitchen, litchen; laundry, laurel;

Gertrude, German; wind and mind;

Scene, Melpomene; mankind;

Tortoise, torquoise, chamois – leather;

Reading, reading, heathen, heather.

Don’t you think so, reader, rather

Saying lather, bather, father?

Finally: which rhymes with “enough”

Though, through, plough, cough, hough, or tough?

Hiccough has the sound of “cup”.

My advice is, give it up!

The English Lesson

We must polish the Polish furniture.

He could lead if he would get the lead out.

The farm was used to produce produce.

The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.

The soldier decided to desert in the desert.

This was a good time to present the present.

A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

The Funny English Language

We’ll begin with a box and the plural is boxes,

But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes.

The one fowl is a goose but two are called geese,

Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a whole set of mice,

Yet the plural of house is houses not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,

Why shouldn’t the plural of pan be called pen?

So English, I fancy you will all agree,

Is the funniest language you ever did see.

Mysteries of Anatomy

Where can a man buy a cap for his knee,

Or the key to a lock of his hair?

Can his eyes be called an academy

Because there are pupils there?

Can the crook in your elbow be sent to jail?

If so, just what did he do?

How can you sharpen your shoulder blades?

I’ll be darned if I know – do you?

Eye Halve a Spelling Chequer

(I Have a Spelling Checker)

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea

It plain lee marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word

And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write

It shows me strait a weigh.

Eye have run this poem threw it

I am shore your please two no

Its letter perfect in it’s weigh

My chequer tolled me sew.

Yes, you smirked or laughed at these poems because you can relate to it. It’s so amazing how a simple idiom can be creatively become a way to make it funny.

So if you want to go for a further learning in English, I’d suggest you to take a closer step into taking English classes. I assure you, you will learn lots and lots of knowledge concerning the language.
