English language learners of all levels love to learn idioms, and learning idioms is a fun way to begin a class before moving on to more substantial grammar-based work.
This idioms collection has two slides for each idiom. The first slide contains a picture based on a literal interpretation of the idiom. Elicit suggestions from the students as to what the idiom may mean.
Then show the next slide which gives the explanation of the idiom and have the students recall what the idiom was.
Do 3-5 idioms per day so as not to overwhelm the students.
Crisp, beautiful, and humorous graphics.
A PowerPoint containing all the animal idioms in one place is sold separately elsewhere in my store.
