All Clear: Idioms in Context
Considered by some as the best idioms books on the market, these enticing texts splash through the world of idioms with an irresistible charm! Each two-color book offers 8-12 units of theme-grouped idioms. Each idiom is introduced with a humorous illustration where needed, a clear definition, background on its origin, and sample sentences. The idioms are then followed by mini-dialogues, dictations, pronunciation work, listening exercises, and discussion and writing tasks. After every few units there is a sensational review section filled with off-the-beaten path practices, from puzzles to tic-tac-toe! The audio components provide recordings of natural conversations and material for the listening exercises.
The 8 lessons cover idioms used in "problem" situations, telephone conversations, in daily routines, in a restaurant, and more.
