    And in Spanish you would use “divertido” for fun , and “gracioso” for funny; to avoid misunderstandings.

    @Ruth yes. Spanish makes it easier to distinguish.

    @Shawn I meant that sometimes there’s also a confusion since some people use divertido for both, but if we use divertido for fun and gracioso for funny, then we can avoid misunderstandings.

    Fun is using to show my feeling, and funny is using when i want to share some opinion? Is that correct?

    @Carica not quite. Fun means have a good time. Funny is something that makes you laugh. If you say you feel funny, it has another meaning. It means you feel a bit different than normal. Feel free to write your own sentence to see if you understand, and I’ll let you know if it is used correctly.

    @Shawn not only students 😅 My (complementary) suggestion is relate to the example "let's have fun", because I guess nobody confuse "fun" meaning in this phrase 🤓

    It’s fun to read a funny book. Am I right?
