Fun Homophones with Comics

kaplan comicsDo you love learning English with comics?

At RealLife English, we believe the best way to learn languages is by using entertaining, funny resources. So today we’ve got a special treat for you. Our friends at Kaplan International, with the help of Pablo Stanley, have created a comic especially for English learners.

Today’s comic is all about helping you learn some homophones.

What’s a Homophone?

A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word, but has a different meaning and spelling.

Here is a list of the homophones used in the comic, as well as their alternative explanations:

     1. Cereal: a breakfast food made from roasted grain.
         Serial: repeatedly committing the same offence.

     2. Maize: a Central American cereal plant which yields large grains such as corn or sweetcorn.
         Maze: a network of paths and hedges designed as a puzzle.

     3. Where: at or in what place.
         Were(wolf): a person who changes for periods of time into a wolf.

     4. Knight: in the past, a European soldier who wore a suit of armor and rode a horse.
         Night: the period between sunset and sunrise, especially the hours of darkness.

      5. Flour: a powder obtained by grinding grain used to make bread, cakes, and pastry.
         Flower: the colored part of a plant from which fruit and petals develop.

Remember to pay attention for these words in the comic below.
