Why and how is a song about Idioms effective for students?
Idioms are one of the most difficult types of figurative language to teach. Because the words expressed intentionally do not match their intended meaning, the concept is completely abstract. Idioms are particularly confusing for English Language Learners and younger students. This video connects with students because the story line is so memorable. A young man is confused when his family communicates with him using idioms. The video provides several examples of common idioms to help build the concept for students. Recognizing examples of idioms as they come up in everyday conversation is key to connecting this abstract concept to real life!
