(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). Don 't get lost in the routine! Spice up your vocabulary as you grab a bite to eat, or on the way home from school. No matter the location, keep your mind sharp with phrases that 'll be sure to liven up your day. 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 .
