The study examines to what extent Humor can (1) reduce students’ boredom and anxiety,(2) increase their motivation (3) create the appropriate atmosphere to enhance learning (4)it further attempts to determine the major traits of the effective teaching based on the use of Humor. So, in order to gain deeper understanding of the impact of Humor on EFL teaching and learning, the data is collected by the means of case study. The population selected for this study has been presented by the first- year LMD students at the Branch of English at Mohammed Kheider University, Biskra. A random sampling procedure has been used in the selection of the sample for this study. The researcher has observed students’ attitudes during a period of time to examine their adaptation to humor. Moreover, a questionnaire has been designed to survey the notion of Humor as a pedagogical tool in the teachers’ point of view. Through comparing, explaining and commenting on the participants’ attitudes toward the suggested strategy, the data have been analyzed. At the end, conciliatorily, the results obtained have revealed that the research hypothesis is workable; humor can be applied as a pedagogical strategy so as to create successful EFL learners.|
