Publisher's Summary

Do you feel that it’s like pulling teeth when you want to learn new sayings?

Would you like to be able to discover new American idioms and phrases that will make communication a piece of cake?

Sure, you can learn English with a language course or a textbook just fine, and climb up the ranks in terms of your grasp of the language....but are you sure you can talk like a native?

For starters, many expressions used by fluent speakers of English can’t exactly be learned in a book, and it can be frustrating to realize that your formal learning hasn’t been enough to teach you the way people talk in real life.

Written to act as a powerful addition to your other English-learning resources, this book will allow you to:

  • Discover over 1,300 different idioms and sayings, covering hundreds of different subjects
  • Learn the correct definition and usage of each expression, ensuring that you know exactly when you can say them out loud during a conversation
  • Visualize examples of the sayings in common conversations, helping you understand their context
  • Take advantage of important tips we provide you in the introduction and conclusion of the book, so that you can boost your learning and get a much better understanding of the English language.

What are you waiting for? Over 1,300 idioms and expressions are awaiting you! Don’t miss out on learning why this dark horse will help you see the big picture!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great for supporting English teachers in classes!

This book is perfect for anyone seeking to teach a loved one in terms of daily-use expressions. I'm planning to use it extensively for this precise purpose. Great narrator, too!

So far, it's just what I was looking for!

I'm halfway through the book and I'm super happy with it, it's just what I was looking for!

It's a giant list of American idioms and sayings with examples and everything. I think this book is great both for ESL students and native English speakers that want to brush up their slang.
