Students will be able to utilize and expand their overall conversational skills by introducing idioms into their speech. The idioms covered in this course include Money & Finance, Time, Weather, Traveling, Personal Qualities, Sports, Knowledge, Age, Clothing & Dress, and Emotions.
But just what is an idiom? Have you ever laughed your head off at something funny? The phrase “laughed your head off” is an idiom! We know that you did not literally laugh so hard that your head separated from your body.
When you put words together to create a meaning that is different than the meaning of the individual words, we create what is called an idiom. These phrases come from spoken language and they are basically new vocabulary that we create by using old vocabulary because we are too lazy or unimaginative to think of new words.
Idioms are a lot of fun to learn, and they definitely make your language more colorful. Would you like to learn more?
