This revised 101 American English Idioms provides quick definitions, quirky drawings, and clear samples in an engaging, casual, and concise manner. While designed more for self-study, casual reading, and personal delight than classroom deployment, I've been glad to have this on my English teacher's bookshelf of useful sources to share with intermediate ESL students during conferences. Confession: I have not heard the audio CD so I can't comment on its style, and other reviewers might be correct about its entertainment value. The book itself, however, provides some casual smiles while introducing common American idioms that do confuse many ESL students. Let's call this book more fun than functional - but fun matters too!

I listened to the tape in the past 15+ years and learned so much from it. Every immigrant should listen to it over and over. Not only the language but the culture hidden in the conversation would benefit you tremendously, imo.

My student, an Arabic speaker, likes this book very much because it helps her understand the sayings as well as being amusing. Sometimes, however, I find that idiomatic phrases are used in the explanations. I think she could have trouble with the book w/o my help.

Idioms are always fun to teach and this book presents them in a delightful manner. Idioms can be very difficult to understand for second language students.

It is an interesting book. I keep listening again and again and the more I listened the better I understood the idioms.

Free books, you won't spend time on it. But buy a book, you will learn it deeply.
