American Language Course: Book of Idioms. Slang, Special Expressions, & Idiomatic Language - удобный справочник с полезными идиомами, сленгом и специфическими выражениями. Книга является полезным дополнением для студентов среднего и продвинутого уровня знания английского языка.
Idioms bring colour to language, but they can be a problem for nonnative speakers. The Book of Idioms is a handy reference with useful idioms, slang and special expressions. Each entry has an example sentence along with the definition. The Book of Idioms is a helpful supplement for intermediate and advanced students.
The Book of Idioms is designed to assist in the acquisition of current American English idiomatic expressions.
This book was written with English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESLIEFL) students in mind. Students enrolled in the American Language Course (ALC) will benefit from these expressions in their follow-on-training (FOT) courses, as this book includes general military expressions as well as everyday expressions.
Idiomatic expressions are listed in alphabetical order, and students can find example sentences for every idiom. Certain expressions are grouped by a common keyword. Within each grouping, expressions are alphabetized, numbered, and placed in brackets with example sentences following. Expressions with multiple meanings are presented in a readable manner with each meaning and its example sentence indicated by a lowercase letter in parentheses.
