English humour can be difficult for non-native English speakers. This is why simple English jokes are a very good way of teaching vocabulary, and why I’ve chosen a very simple joke for this lesson. The jokes goes: A lion walks into a restaurant, sits down and calls the waiter over. The waiter says, “Can I take your order, Sir?” To which the lion says, “I’d like an antelope… steak.” The waiter says, “Of course, Sir. One antelope steak. But why the pause?” The lion says, “Because I’m a lion.” Watch the video and then do the exercises in the Activator. The exercises will help you with your pronunciation skills. There are four homophones in the lesson which have very different spellings but exactly the same sound when spoken.
