Programme outline

Have you heard people say, “I’m over the moon!” or “I’m on cloud nine!” when they are happy? Those funny expressions are idioms. This programme is in the Idiom Series, which teaches pupils some common idioms used by native English speakers. By watching John and his friends playing a football match, pupils can hear and learn some useful idioms to express their feelings, such as being happy, upset, angry, afraid, worried and nervous. Would you like to use idioms to express yourself?
