More Fun than Functional - But Fun Matters
on May 25, 2012
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!
