Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 23, 2014 9:51 AM

Often when it seems an ELL doesn't know prepositions, the real root of the "error"  has to do with a phrasal verb.    Bottom line:  English is complex.  The better we understand our own language, the better we can help others  learn and use it in meaningful contexts.

"Change your language and you change your thoughts." -- Karl Albrecht

Academic language is a meta-language that helps learners acquire the 50,000 words that they are expected to have internalized by the end of high school and includes everything from illustration and chart literacy to speaking, grammar and genres within fields.

42 Idiom Examples And Explanations | TeachTought

42 Idiom Examples And Explanations

 

Oxford Dictionaries offers the definition of an idiom as “a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g.,rain cats and dogs, see the light).”

 

A drop in the bucket.

To beat a dead horse.

Bring home the bacon.

Go against the grain.

 

These interesting phrases are metaphorical, and usually specific to certain culture of geographical region (which means strictly translating them into other languages is confusing).

 

The video from Mental Floss quickly goes through 42 idiom examples in video form, making it a great introduction for your students. But the best part is that it also explains the origin of each phrase–and many of the explanations may surprise you.
