    Teaching sarcasm to advanced student

    Does anyone know of any free resources/activities on the web, for teaching conversation incorporating sarcasm?

    Thanks!

    I can't say that I found what you are looking for, but I did find something interesting. Go to: http://childrentoday.com/resources/a...s/sarcasim.htm

    Isn't sarcasm best taught on the fly?

    One needs to be taught first how to snatch flies out of mid-air with his bare hands.

    How about fly swatters instead? Not to mention bug spray.

    Sarcasm is very a cultural thing. I haven't got the chance to see how a fly looks like in NYC! Easterns flies are black though.

    You may not have recognized them. NYC flies have style. They wear fur coates in winter.
