Summary, etc.: "It slipped my mind," "Don't fly off the handle," and "I'm counting on you" are just a few of the idiomatic expressions that native English speakers might use on any given day. For non-native speakers, however, these phrases can be confusing. "Easy American idioms" cuts through that confusion and teaches natural sounding conversational English. The lessons in "Easy American idioms" focus on situations that everyone can relate to: meeting people, expressing likes/satisfaction, expressing dislikes/displeasure, working, shopping, socializing, sports, television, going out, and more. Each section features useful and appropriate idiomatic expressions, with dialogues interspersed between lessons. Idioms can be complicated, but the lessons and dialogues are simple and clear. Includes over 4 hours of recordings.
