Product Description
Connect: Stories Behind Idioms Book 2

‘Connect: Stories Behind Idioms’ is a series of two books, each covering 50 idioms. Each of these idioms has a story or origin behind it. Knowing the story behind an idiom helps students understand and appreciate the idiom better.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What you’ll find in each unit:

Each unit of the book focuses on a particular idiom. It consists of two pages.
The first page addresses the following:
• The meaning of the idiom and example sentences
• Background or additional information about the idiom

The second page tells the story behind the idiom. It is highly illustrated, in comic style, to make the learning of idioms fun!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Practice:

There is a two-page practice after every 10 units. The practice pages offer a non-intimidating platform to assess students’ understanding of the idioms.
