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?

Fun:

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.

 

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!
