A Blog to Help Non-Native English Speakers Negotiate Their Way Through the Confusions of the English Language
Anyone who has studied a foreign language knows that the idioms are the hardest part. They do not make sense. This blog was inspired by the international students I go to school with. Even when I try my hardest, inevitably an idiom will come out. (You have no idea how many idioms that I had to censor while writing this!) I started announcing it as "The Idiom of the Day."
After a while, people were coming to me to explain idioms that they were "picking up on the street." Then I was inspired. Why just help people one-by-one when I can help a community?
That is how "And Today's Idiom Is..." was born. I will try to use ones that come up in daily life. If you have any that you want to know about, please leave a comment. It will likely be featured in a future post.
