The activities incorporated into these lessons are meant to challenge students from a range of proficiencies (high-beginner to advanced) to work together to understand the meanings and uses of the idioms. These active lessons get students moving, thinking, and speaking!
Idioms and expression are one of the most difficult aspects of language. Every language has its own expressions that contain cultural values, history, and traditional beliefs. These lessons are meant for students to be able to recognize, understand, and use these idioms in their daily lives. Idioms occur in books, movies, songs, and everyday conversations, and as such, it is important that students are able to identify the meanings of these idioms and expressions so that they are able to connect to the English language and English culture more deeply depending on what their language goals are. Additionally, this curriculum is meant to spark critical thinking and the sharing of experiences, opinions, and knowledge through the medium of English idioms and expressions.
All of these lessons were created by The Living Room English Conversation School’s Cait Goss, an ESOL teacher and curriculum developer based in Northeastern Thailand. For more information, go to The Living Room’s Website at: http://thelivingroomenglishschool.weebly.com/.
