I don't recognise this phrase to be the same one I learnt in class is it inaccurate or should it be something else? The phrase i want in french is It makes me laugh. Thanks
Yes it is a correct sentence, although a little familiar.
"Ça" is the contracted, familiar form of "cela", which means "that, it".
"me" could be placed after the verb as "moi" : "Cela fait rire moi". It is not correct french, but keeps the Subject-Verb-Object (SVO) syntax.
"faire rire" is directly translatable as "make laugh".
