Synopsis

Beginning a new language may seem like a daunting task, you ’re never really starting from scratch. And if you can just get through the day ahead, the next will surely be a bit easier. And before you know it, you ’ll see the light at the end called fluency. In no time, you ’ll be talking with the locals about the time and weather from morning till night. So let ’s start the day off right with an idiom attack! Idioms can be fun to learn (or teach) at any age! Included is everything you need: 55+ flash cards to learn useful idioms fast Mp3 audio download of all the idioms, meanings and sample sentences for pronunciation practice Colorful animated images to create your story Choose how you learn: with pictures, definitions, sentences, or audio Testing materials - fill in the blank, crosswords, word lists, etc. Connection to other great resources by Idiom Attack Why idioms? (Idioms include - essential idioms, native expressions, phrasal verbs, common sayings, figures of speech, and colloquialisms) Idiomatic expressions are COLORFUL groups of words that paint pictures in our minds of a meaning unrelated to the individual words. Because the combination of words will seem peculiar to non-native speakers, it is often quite difficult for them to learn idioms. They decorate the daily conversations of native English speakers in various ways. So if your goal is to conquer English, you must conquer idioms first (before they get you). Take your conversational English to a whole new level! Start with familiar, basic idiom topics like time and weather and work your way up to becoming a native speaker of American English. Idiom Attack has developed these flashcards with your busy schedule in mind. We understand that you have a job, work, kids, or other school work to worry about and we want to make learning something new painless. When life catches up to you, just put the cards back in the box and continue with your day. They will be there when you need them next. Be prepared with the finest tools to respond in common yet creative ways. Be fluent in American English and never feel out of place again! Finally, you won ’t have to worry about fitting in or not know what to say. TLDR - Learn idioms through visualization, find context, try to translate, find a key word, be creative, have fun, guess, keep your ears open, listen for tone of voice, just listen (speaking will come later), learn by topic, and learn through audio, images, & amp; animation .
