Você já ouviu falar destas two words, e sabe que both podem ser used como adjectives. Yes, you’re right: they have similar meanings – but they’re different. So, what’s the difference?
Quando você acha algo (ou alguém) Fun, você o considera nice and pleasant:
Eg 1: Biking is a fun sport: I like it very much.
Not: Biking is a funny sport.
Eg 2: The party was really fun. I danced all night!
Not: The party was really funny .
Você também pode use fun as a noun:
Eg 3:Let’s go out and have some fun!
Not: Let’s go out and have some funny.
Já quando algo ou alguém é Funny , ele te faz laugh:
Eg 1: My best friend is very funny: she makes me laugh a lot!
Not: My best friend is very fun .
Eg 2: The show was so funny que não consegui stop laughing!
Not: The show was so fun.
E se esta thing – or person – for Fun and Funny ao mesmo time? No problem, isto até pode happen… Se esta thing – or person – te fizer feel good e ainda laugh, it’s Fun and Funny!
