In speaking a foreign language, we have all had the experience that we express ourselves in the simplest way possible. What we tend to leave out is idiomatic language. This dictionary aims to help the reader become a more competent and creative user of English idioms. The volumes in this new series of idiom dictionaries include: Volume 1: Emotions; Volume 2: Human Relationships; Volume 3: Actions and Events; Volume 4: Thought and the Mind.
