Bored vs Boring - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
This video focuses on the difference between bored and boring. Using those two words incorrectly is a very common mistake, especially for English learners around the world. The word bored is an adjective describing the feeling when there is nothing to do or when a person is not interested, for example, she was so bored that she fell asleep. Boring is also an adjective but this word refers to the cause of the bored feeling rather than the feeling itself. For example, the class was so boring that she fell asleep. Here the class is the reason for the feeling. The same concept can be applied to similar word pairs such as 'interested - interesting' or 'tired - tiring'.
