    Default fun and funny

    Hello,

    Oce I said to my English teacher (native speaker) that her lessons were funny and she asked me if I meant they were fun.
    I have always used the word funny and fun as synonims. Is it correct? (I know that funny also means something like strange)

    fun means, enjoyable
    funny means, laughable; strange, odd
