It’s A Breeze: 42 Lively English Lessons on American Idioms

by Toni Aberson

This collection of 42 short English lessons focuses on specific American idioms and common phrases. The thematic chapters are organized into seven categories: Let’s Get Started, Fun with Food, Body Language, Animal Wisdom, Colorful Language, How’s the Weather, and Where Are You. Each concise self-contained chapter explores a single American idiom with clear definitions, sample sentences, short readings, comprehension checks, vocabulary lists, writing activities, and conversation questions. The comfortable pace, unit quizzes (with answer keys) and an index of American idioms and expressions also makes this book comfortable for both English classroom use and self-study. Written for high school ESL students and adult English language learners, this book can also improve the vocabulary and cultural literacy of intermediate English students. Understanding and using these American idioms will help immigrants sound more like their American neighbors. Idiom by idiom, readers and students will find speaking English less difficult and more fun – even “a breeze.”

Context counts in teaching English. Your students have their own personalities, their own needs, and their own favorite topics. In the summer of 2011, The Language Company, a chain of over 20 Intensive English Language programs across the United States, asked us to create special editions of selected chapters for their intermediate and advanced students. Here are the three distinctive versions of Compelling Conversations created for their high school students, and two levels (intermediate and advanced) for graduate and post-doc students at the Berkeley campus. other esl, ell, & efl titles
