Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is designed for non-native speakers of English at the intermediate level and advanced levels. It features four different native speakers of English. Idioms in English will improve your listening comprehension, pronunciation, and vocabulary in English.

An idiom is a group of words with a special meaning of its own that is not clear from the meanings of the individual words. Idioms such as "think out of the box" and "a long shot" are used extensively in English in email, newspapers, and conversations. When you don't understand idioms, you can feel left out of a conversation or miss the point of a story.

This audiobook focuses on 100 frequently used idioms. Each chapter begins with a story or dialogue using the idioms in context. Next, listen to examples using the idiom in sentences that illustrate the meaning and demonstrate usage. Finally, listen to a pronunciation model for each idiom in a short sentence. You will hear a chime, which is your cue to repeat the sentence before you hear the model again. For information on our interactive language programs, go to www.amenglish.com.
