Do 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.
