This is a collection of idiomatic expressions and jargon that my ESL adult learners have encountered in their workplaces. This is a very helpful list for employees in a variety of situations: on the factory floor, in team or staff meetings, in the break room, in the board room, as they pass one another in a hallway, in committees, or in their supervisor's office. Whether they ever use some of these expressions or not, adult ESL employees feel empowered to at least know what they mean. These also can be acted out in the classroom to ensure learners understand the context in which they could be used.
