The exercise can be used as a role playing conversation between you and your student. Page 2 presents the entire conversation followed by pages with only one part of the conversation. Role play with your student while highlighting the following expressions:
Go off the grid
Stick your head in the sand!
Throw money down a rat hole
Counting the days
Head in the Clouds
Have fun with your student. We use many idiomatic expressions in American English and this exercise will help your student improve reading, listening and conversational skills as well as promote familiarity with our slang and expressions.
