202 Illustrated American Idioms: Book 2 (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
A Description Of This Booklet
Someone once said, "A picture is worth 1,000 words". Idioms create pictures also. Idioms can be facilitators (when they help in understanding) or they can become barriers (when they confuse understanding.)
What I have attempted to present in this booklet, is to remove any barriers to understanding, without using a thousand words. Instead, I have drawn an illustration for each and every idiom.
Every language has idioms. Some languages have fewer, some have more. Idioms enrich language by making it more colorful, more memorable, more useful, and above all more fun
America has idiomatically been called "The Melting Pot" because of all the many different immigrants (with such different languages) who have made this country their home. Because of this fact, America can boast that it has the richest "treasure chest of idioms". It is also why the American Language is so difficult for people to understand.
Socrates defined when something was good by saying "Something is good when it fulfills the purpose for which it was created." I believe that my Illustrated American Idioms will fulfill the purpose of helping people to acquire understanding, better their language usage skills, and laugh more through it all.
