Traveling the World Through Idioms
Idioms are tricky little devils, says Judi Kadden, the author of Traveling through Idioms and now Traveling the World through Idioms. But Kadden has found that they can be easy and fun to learn if they are placed in a rich and interesting context, such as travel. In Kadden's first book, ESL/EFL students learned idioms as they traveled to ten well-known cities in the United States (Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Boston, for example). In Traveling the World through Idioms, students learn idioms while traveling to ten countries around the world (Brazil, Canada, and Thailand, to name just a few). Each chapter explores exciting destinations, valued customs and religions, holidays, festivities, foods, and some language indigenous to each country. A variety of exercises are provided -- those that teach collocations and critical-thinking and those that require pair and group work. Wonderful color photos enrich the experience of students as they become familiar with each country. The idioms presented in this textbook will help prepare students for idioms covered on the TOEFL RM test.
