Bored vs Boring | Ask Linda! | English Grammar

Linda breaks down the difference between “bored” and “boring” for us in this video. “Bored” is an adjective that describes 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 it describes 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.

Note that only people and animals can be bored. Whereas situations, things, people etc. can be boring.
