Rolls Off the Tongue

Rolls Off the Tongue

English learners love learning new idioms. They often find that they have similar expressions in their own language.  On his site “Rolls off the Tongue,” Andy Martin challenges learners to guess, learn, and remember idiomatic expressions through cartoons. Combine  images with humour and you have a great recipe for learning! Each new idiom features a cartoon, the origin of the idiom, the literal meaning, the idiomatic meaning, an explanation as to why the cartoon is funny, and a sample sentence. Show a daily cartoon in class, or assign an idiom for homework. You could also have your students teach each other  idioms from the archives. Idioms will be rolling off your students tongues in no time.
