Idiom Attack is a collection of 300 North American idioms in common usage today, arranged in an easy to read and understand format. 25 topical chapters provide easy access for intermediate to advanced students of English. Only the most useful idioms and phrasal expressions are included, with meanings in both English and Chinese for comparison. Example sentences provide contextual support for more in depth understanding and practical application and stories challenge learners with the application of language with follow-up comprehension questions designed to coax them to use the target language. Finally, discussion questions encourage deeper dialogue and practice with opportunities for reading, writing, listening and speaking.
