Games

Hi, everyone! How are you today? 😀

Using games is one of the most important way to teach efficiently in a language class. Games mean a lot to students. It does not matter when and where they are played, we can not deny their importance.

This post will be under construction. I will always add some information, as time goes by. I also count on your suggestions out there! 🙂

I hope you have a happy learning! Continue reading

Idioms

Hello, everyone!

This time I want to cover a very peculiar theme concerning any additional language we may study: the idioms. But what are these?

An idiom is a phrase or a fixed expression that has a figurative or literal meaning.

Idioms occur frequently in all languages. It is estimated that there are at least twenty-five thousand (yeah, 25.000!) idiomatic expressions in the English language. Read more here.
