Find a good, brief joke in a language other than your mother tongue; if you don't know any other languages this might be a good way to start learning. Record your voice telling the joke focusing on pronunciation and try to make it sound as natural as you can with appropriate vocal inflections. Add a (cc) music track underneath (maybe from jamendo.com) and a laugh track (soungle.com is a good source) at the end.

Make ’em Laugh

I’m currently taking German 201 and I thought that this joke was very punny as I like to call it. I choose this joke because I feel that a person who doesn’t speek German can still get the jist of it and might be able to get a laugh out …

¡Una broma!

Hello to all!

It wasn’t all that funny to start with in Spanish, and I can’t imagine that I made it any funnier. It was a good joke to pick though because it was short and easy to get. I just grabbed a couple of audio clips from …

Make ‘Em Laugh (1 1/2 Stars)

I chose this audio assignment because I am a German major and can speak German, so it felt only natural to choose the audio assignment in another language. I googled jokes in German, which for the most part I didn’t understand, so I either …

Ich Bin ein Berliner

Laughing in Italian

Make ‘Em Laugh was a wee bit challenging, considering I don’t really know any languages other than Spanish and English.  Trying to pronounciate words I wasn’t familiar with was so difficult.  I chose to do a joke in Italian.   I chose this joke because I’ve always wanted to learn italian…

Make’em Laugh

This is my horrible attempt of trying to tell a joke in spanish. The messed up part is I actually took spanish all four years of high school and this is the best I can do. Also i have no idea what any of it means. sigh…

¡Eso sí que es!

Here’s my quick attempt at the Make’em Laugh! assignment.

The humor comes from the fact that the Spanish phrase “¡Eso sí que es!” (“That’s it!”) sounds like the English spelling of “socks” (“S-O-C-K-S”). I got the joke from here.…

Make’em Laugh

For this assignment the instructions were to tell a brief joke in a language that is not your native tongue. I have taken a couple semesters of Spanish in school, but am still far from fluent. I hope my Spanish is decipherable! I began by typing “spanish english joke” into…

Avarizia: a joke about greed, apples, and Italians

I always liked the “Make ‘em Laugh” audio assignment which charges you with telling a joke in a language other than your native tongue. But rather than telling a joke in another language, I actually recorded Antonella telling a joke in her native Italian while at the same time contextualizing…

¿Entonces cuál es la mala?

For the last of my 4 stars I decided to put my years of Spanish classes to work. The joke I found didn’t have a title unfortunately, so I just picked out a line from it that I thought would work well. I recorded that myself, downloaded the guitar music…

Other Audio Assignments

For my last two audio assignments I decided to do “Autotune Something” and “Make ‘em Laugh”. For my “Autotune Something” I decided to try and autotune a segment of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have A Dream Speech”. I hope this isn’t frowned upon by most people since this…

Joke Auf Deutsch

For the extra audio assignment, I decided to do “Make ‘Em Laugh” submitted by Darren Kuropatwa.  I’m a German major, so of course this assignment caught my attention.  I added some background music from jamendo.com, and found the laugh at the end (which made me crack up when I heard…
