The Best Funny Videos To Help Teach Grammar – Help Me Find More


Earlier today, I posted Weird Al Weird Al Yankovic’s new funny video teaching grammar (I’ve also posted it below). Then, Heather Wolpert-Gawron showed me another funny one, that’s also posted below. I figured there have got to be more out there, so I invite readers to contribute the ones you know about — I’ll post them here and, of course, give you full credit. These can certainly be useful in the classroom!

Chana at GCFLearnFree shared their fun and corny videos that are probably more categorized as easily confused words than grammar-related, but I’m still adding the series to this list.

You can see them all here.

Here’s one of them, and I have the video set as a playlist so you can automatically see them all, too…

This next video shows Sherlock teacher grammar to a murderer. It obviously doesn’t fit into the theme of humor, but I know my high school teenagers would nevertheless find it funny, so I’m adding it here.

  1. Another video to help students with grammar.

  2. GCFLearnFree (where I work) has a good bunch. I’d argue that they’re more on easily confused words than grammar, but they are pretty funny.

  3. This is long and probably too fast for most ELLs, but I thought his references and asides were hilarious:

  4. Check out the Grammar Girl podcast. This episode gives some food for thought about the Weird Al grammar video particularly around the 5 min mark:

  5. Thanks for these. You inspired me to look for more, leading to a goldmine of 50+ short and entertaining grammar/usage videos on YouTube from Shmoop!
