Have you ever realised you couldn’t remember English vocabulary?
Vocabulary is an essential part of learning English language. If you think that endlessly repeating a list of words will make you learn fast, you’re probably wrong. It’s better to learn vocabulary in a creative and funny way. Now you can do it thanks to our cartoons inspired by ironic situations.
Have you ever wanted to use English phrasal verbs but you couldn’t put them in context?
Remembering phrasal verbs is a difficult part of studying English language and it’s because of many reasons. There are so many different phrasal verbs and they can be confusing because of many possible combinations between propositions and verbs in the English language. Thanks to theCocks.eu you can learn by identifying yourself with real life scenes, and memorising phrasal verbs will be easy.
Have you ever put English idioms in the wrong context and got strange looks from your listeners?
Using English idioms correctly can be difficult because it is necessary to use their metaphorical meaning in real life situations. Therefore, it could be complicated to understand when an English idiom should not be translated literally. Also in this case it’s useful to study them in context, in a funny and witty way.
Does English grammar seem as complicated as a Rubik’s Cube?
English grammar can seem complicated when it’s not explained in an easy way. Sometimes we perfectly know the rules but we are not able to use it in a real conversation.It is therefore important to study real life examples of grammar use and always try to put it in a context. If it’s a funny context, your memory will work better 😉

It’s a popular surname, even if it’s usually (but not always) spelled with an “x” (Cox). One example is the actress from “Friends” TV series who played Monica. Her real name is Courteney Cox. The surname spelled with “ck” might be translated as “roosters” , the animals, or… if your mind is filthy, you might recognise that it’s also an English bad word (a swear word)
The Cocks’ family names have double meanings
DICK (the husband)
Dick is a short for Richard but it also means “penis” or is an offensive way to call a person a jerk, stupid.
GINA (the wife)
..I don’t have to explain this one! 😉
DUMMY (the baby)
Dummy is a name for baby’s pacifier, the thing babies hold in their mouths to calm down, but it also means a stupid person.
