The English Greek Joke Book is an excellent way for Greeks to practise their English - and for foreigners who are trying to learn Greek. Great jokes like:
“Mαμά, μπορώ να φορέσω σουτιέν τώρα που είμαι δεκαέξι; "
or this classic
Ένας άντρας ογδόντα ετών επισκέφτηκε τον γιατρό του.
“Πρόκειται να παντρευτώ την επόμενη εβδομάδα, γιατρέ.”
“Πολύ καλά”, είπε ο γιατρός. “Πόσων ετών είναι η φίλη σου;”
“Δεκαοχτώ”, απάντησε ο άντρας.
“Θεέ μου!”, είπε ο γιατρός. “Θα πρέπει να σε προειδοποιήσω ότι οποιαδήποτε δραστηριότητα στο κρεβάτι θα μπορούσε να αποβεί μοιραία.”
“Ε”, είπε ο άντρας. “Αν πεθάνει, πέθανε.”
I first learnt German by telling jokes to people in my awful German. But I quickly progressed and now I'm pretty fluent - and know lots of great jokes as well. When you're trying to improve your skills in a foreign language, reading is one of the best ways - and reading jokes is probably the best of all. The best way to use this book is to treat it like a swimming pool on a warm day. Dip in now and again and it's a very pleasant experience. If you stay in too long you won't enjoy it as much.
