Idioms And Phrases Through Practice
Idioms and Phrases through Practice is a conversation practice book intended to be useful to the learners of English for an oral practice in the classroom, outside the classroom, or at home, wherever they could comfortably train themselves in the use of idioms and phrases. Idioms and phrases introduced through conversations will enable the learners to have a better comprehension, better retention and better use in their communication. With this aim, in this book I have chosen the idioms and phrases that are the most important and oft-used in everyday communication, and introduced them through conversations. The conversations in the book are down to earth, in simple English, and are based on common everyday situations, with an aim to make conversations natural and interesting. Regular and systematic practice of the conversations over and again will certainly ensure confident and comfortable use of the prepositions.
