These four topic-based worktexts are the perfect way to help students master the intricacies of idiomatic English. Noun phrases, verb phrases, prepositional phrases, and adjective phrases are covered in detail to give students ample opportunity to familiarize themselves with the idiosyncrasies of the language. Each book has fifteen self-contained units, presented in order of difficulty. Sample exercises give students the opportunity to work with a large number of expressions that "don't follow the rules." This allows students to master portions of the language that might otherwise confuse them. Informative and interesting topics motivate students to complete the exercises and get a firm grasp on the idiomatic expressions. Students explore such topics as Family, Entertainment, Politics, Education, Dating, Work, Shopping, Business, and Hobbies. An answer key and index are provided to make self-study and evaluation of progress easy. This is an ideal supplement for any intermediate or advanced course. Instructors concentrating on composition and conversation will find it extremely helpful.
