Descriere

This book includes and explanation, the structure, and an example sentence for each idiom. Learning these English idioms can help your English sound more natural, and can help you prepare for TOEIC, TOEFL, and IELTS exams.

An idiom is a word or set of words that have a different meaning than the usual & literal meaning of those words. For example, let’s look at the idiom, “a piece of cake.” The literal meaning of “a piece of cake” is “one section or part of a whole cake.” However, as an idiom, we use “a piece of cake” to mean, “something that is very easy to do.” For example, Jack has been building and repairing computers for a long time. For him, repairing a computer is a piece of cake.

Idioms are commonly used in everyday, conversational English. It is more natural to say, “That job was a piece of cake,” than “That job was rather easy for me.” I encourage you to study the lessons in this book, and begin using these idioms in your conversations. You will sound more natural when you do so.

A Message From Michael:

Thank you for purchasing 365 American English Idioms. My name is Michael DiGiacomo, and I am a native New Yorker. I have been helping language students learn English since the early 1990’s. I began my formal language-teaching career in Sendai, Japan in 1994. Since then, I have worked in the ESL field as an instructor, a teacher trainer, an academic director, and a language school director. Now, I am the owner of Happy English, an English tutoring company in New York City. I teach students from all over the world here in New York, and online in their country.

I believe that language study should be both enjoyable and practical. In 2010 I started a website (www.myhappyenglish.com)to provide a variety of English lessons to students all over the world. I set out to create lessons that were practical, easy to understand, and useful for self-study. Many of my students have given me ideas and suggestions for lessons and this book grew out of some of those ideas.

Idioms are commonly used in everyday, conversational English. Using idioms in your conversation will make your English more colorful and interesting. I encourage you to study the lessons in this book, and begin using these idioms in your conversations today! You will sound more natural when you do so.

As always, thanks for studying with me.
