Idiom Drills for Students of English as a Second Language.
McCallum, George P.
This series of 180 useful everyday idioms is designed for intermediate and advanced level foreign students of English. Each lesson introduces five idioms in a conversational dialogue, followed by definitions, substitution drills, and homework exercises to further illustrate the usage. Each unit of five lessons is followed by a short reading incorporating all 30 of the idioms studied in the unit, and a section of questions about the reading. Suggestions for using these exercises as supplementary work are given in the preface. (AMM)
