Idioms are a very unique way to make a point about something. Sometimes they drive English language learners up the wall.....get it!? A great activity with idioms is to write the idiomatic expression on top of a blank sheet of paper, write its literal meaning on the bottom, and a picture of what the idea might look like to someone who hears the expression and takes it literally!
Figurative Language is just like hot sauce, because, when used correctly, it can add flavor and spice to any composition. My name is Bill MacDonald and I approved this message. ;-)
