personal favorite in my esl teaching toolbox

Any additional comments?

This is a personal favorite for me, as it always comes in handy with new students. Most English learners in the intermediate level do not know half of these idioms and phrasal verbs. The audio helps guide our lessons. I pause the audio to explain further. Very, very useful for English tutors.

to simple and did not have pdf script attaahed

It was a waist of time for me, maybe a 2nd language user may find helpful but i needed the more complicated idioms and these were to simple. if there was a script i would have been able to determine that and traded for a more valuable book.. the narrator voice was very clear and provided many examples needed for a new English learner

Good content but...

The content was pretty good but a large part of it has a background music that was driving me crazy. Get rid of the background music!
