The guide provides the idiom, followed by its meaning. Then, 2 or 3 examples of the idiom’s usage are provided. The meanings and examples are all top-notch, and give an excellent overview of the idiom, its definition, and how it is typically used.
The only shortcoming to this guide is the lack of explanation of how certain idioms came to be. Many people learning English as an additional language are certainly interested in what the idioms mean and how they are used, but they also want to know why the idiom came into existence. This information would have really fleshed out each entry, rather than leaving the entries seem somewhat incomplete.
The format is simple, easy to navigate, and appropriate for kids over the age of 13. The materials is well organized and easy to use. She actually helps tutor foreign exchange students on the English language and uses this book as a guide for some of her private classes. She thoroughly enjoys how easy it is to use and has recommended it to a few of her friends who are working on their English. One French girl is doing very well with the book and a Chinese boy is also finding it very interesting.
It's very basic in the fact that it focuses on frequently used words and phrases. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for for my daughter, but she enjoys it nevertheless. She especially enjoys using it during her English courses with foriegn exchange children. And I think that's basically what it was created for. It'd be a good guide for kids just beginning to learn about idioms. But it's also a good guide for people attempting to learn the English language.
Overall for a little more than $2.00 it was a really good buy. Would I buy it again? Perhaps for a foriegn exchange student, but I don't think I'd buy it for a writing-loving person who just wants more guides to proper writing.
