This course focuses entirely on idioms. There are similar terms, which have very subtle differences. Here is a brief explanation of some of the similar terms:

  • Phrase = a small group of words that expresses an idea
  • Expression = an informal phrase related to an expressed action/feeling
  • Saying = a phrase made from memorable words
  • Proverb = a well-known, wise saying often from folklore/religion giving advice
  • Colloquialism = an informal expression used in spoken conversation
  • Idiom = a saying whose meaning should not be seen as literal

Taking this course on idioms is a smart thing to do because learning idioms can help you sound more like a native English speaker. The idioms are explained in context by a native English speaker. There are many opportunities to practice what you learn, and the course is fun!

Each lesson within the course includes:

  • 2-3 video explanations
  • 10+ examples for each theme
  • Opportunities to quiz yourself on what you learn
  • Bright images and colors to motivate you
