How to understand humour cross culturally

Postby Lilly » Tue Apr 17, 2012 4:30 pm

I came across a comic website which has little visual jokes. It is in English and Chinese and so it made me think why and I wondered if it is as funny in Chinese as it is in English. The website is:

Do you think English and Chinese people will both laugh the same amount? Why is it in both languages? Could it be used to help language learning?

Many thanks,
