Unit 7: Idioms (for ELLs)
This unit is intended for ELLs, who face an additional hurdle when learning new words—they have to contend with idioms. (Idioms are phrases having a meaning not deducible from the meanings of the individual words.) This unit contains three games, each progressively more challenging, that teach ELLs to recognize idioms. At the end of the unit, learners are introduced to the Idioms Strategy.
