      Idioms are so common. You can’t truly learn any language without having a good grasp of it’s expressions. Here are three activities designed to help you learn this week’s idioms;

      1. Answer these forum questions:

      a. Do you usually lift a finger around your home, or do you usually have someone wagging their finger at you because you need to do more?

      b. Tell us about a time that you crossed your fingers that something good would happen.

      2. Write your own dialogue using the 5 idioms. e-mail me your answer and I will give you feedback. You can then post your answer on the forum.

      3. Use 2 or 3 of the idioms while talking to friends or family this weekend. Tell me how it went! e-mail me a brief description about the situation.I will give you feedback and then you can post it to the forum.

      I find it easy to learn the idioms because of a new way of teaching us like showing the flashcard with its meaning and how to pronounce it correctly by listening the dialogue
