Summary

This audiobook is designed for non-native speakers of English at the intermediate level and advanced levels. It features four different native speakers of English. Idioms in English will improve your listening comprehension, pronunciation, and vocabulary in English.

An idiom is a group of words with a special meaning of its own that is not clear from the meanings of the individual words. Idioms such as "think out of the box" and "a long shot" are used extensively in English in e-mail, newspapers, and conversations. When you don't understand idioms, you can feel left out of a conversation or miss the point of a story. This audiobook focuses on 100 frequently used idioms.

Critic reviews

"I notice the idioms used by other people and applying them feels more natural now. I'm really 'dialed in' to the language." (Sherry Wu, Software Engineer)
