English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone Review and Giveaway...

2011 Holiday Gift Guide:  Hostess/Teacher
English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone, Yes, Even You! Reza Mashayekhi

"English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone, Yes, Even You!" contains Easy-to-understand meanings of more than two thousand commonly used English idioms, expressions, and phrases. It shows how they are used, and makes reference to the likely origins of some of them. Another feature in the book is the inclusion of some interesting expressions and proverbs from other languages or cultures that show how people of the world have more things in common culturally than we tend to realize. A number of humorous illustrations are also included to make the book more interesting. Author Reza Mashayekhi, himself a former new-comer to the English language, prepared this book with non-English speakers in mind, especially foreign students. However, it has proven to be a great tool for helping people to communicate with each other in English, whether or not English is their language. This is a great addition to any library, and a gift that will be appreciated over and over again. It will be a fun thing to have in any company lobby, or a valuable reference book on any coffee table."

What we thought:  This was a really fun and informative book.  I enjoyed learning new idioms and learning the meanings and roots of some I have hear before.  This book is extremely thorough and would be a great gift for a teacher or the hostess of a holiday gathering.  It would also be a great conversation starter as a coffee table book.  ABCD Diaries gives English Idioms And Expressions For Everyone, Yes, Even You! an A!
