Description

Source: McGraw-Hill's Conversational American English: The Illustrated Guide to Everyday Expressions of American English by Richard Spears Every language has conventional and much-used ways of expressing even the most commonplace requests, inquiries, or responses. Some of these expressions are idioms or idiomatic. Others are perfectly understandable and literal English, but people unfamiliar with the language may have difficulty formulating them in typical and conventional ways. Derived from NTC’s Dictionary of Everyday American English Expressions, this book is a collection of nearly 5,000 such expressions grouped into 464 topics that are listed under 11 major categories of social interaction. New to this reference are extensive illustrations that place numerous expressions in a visual context, facilitating understanding and memorization. MY OTHER ANKI DECKS This is a sample deck. For more information, please see the Essential Idioms in English page. Nickolay <kelciour@gmail.com>
