PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For this activity I have students work in pairs (class of 30). I ask students to decide if the joke is a cultural reference or a play on words. Next, students translate the joke into Spanish. Finally, one student in the pair reads the joke in Spanish and the partner reads the English translation. As a class, we talk about how well the joke translates. If it is not funny in English, we discuss why. What is lost in translation?
