~ Day-to-day Survival – Getting acclimated… Master 60+ English Idioms & Expressions for OPIc, IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC
If getting used to your new environment is the first step, then getting ready for the unexpected (an Idiom Attack!) should be the next. It’s easy to lose ourselves in our daily routines, so whether you’re going to school, the office, or commuting, idioms will pop up even when you’re not hitting the books. Impress your peers and stay on top of your idiom game with these phrases you’ll run into on a daily basis.
Have no fear, included here is everything you will need:
Idiomatic expressions (essential idioms, native expressions, phrasal verbs, common sayings, figures of speech, and colloquialisms) are COLORFUL groups of words that paint pictures in our minds of a meaning unrelated to the individual words. Because the combination of words will seem peculiar to non-native speakers, it is often quite difficult for them to learn idioms. They decorate the daily conversations of native English speakers in various ways. So if your goal is to conquer English, you must conquer idioms first (before they get you).
Broaden your social circle and take your interpersonal relationships to the next level! From friends to family to prospective lovers, Idiom Attack is here to help you navigate those tricky parts of speech (minus the relationship advice, of course!)
Idiom Attack has developed these flashcards with your busy schedule in mind. We understand that you have a job, work, kids, or other school work to worry about and we want to make learning something new painless. When life catches up to you, just put the cards back in the box and continue with your day. They will be there when you need them next.
Be prepared with the finest tools to respond in common yet creative ways. Be fluent in American English and never feel out of place again! Finally, you won’t have to worry about fitting in or not know what to say.TLDR – Learn idioms through visualization, find context, try to translate, find a key word, be creative, have fun, guess, keep your ears open, listen for tone of voice, just listen (speaking will come later), learn by topic, and learn through audio, images, & text.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO LEARN IDIOMS FAST!
A born-and-bred mid-western boy, Peter Liptak is a poet, world traveler, avid cyclist, and lover of language. Unlike most English majors, he actually made use of his degree teaching English to children and adults in South Korea over the last 20 years, as a private tutor, preschool teacher, and adjunct professor at Incheon University and eventually creating the publishing company Exile Press with its imprints Little Bear Books and Hungry Dictator Press.
Exploring his interests at the University of Minnesota, from the wonders of Astronomy and Anthropology to Philosophy and Poetics, Peter learned new skills as a preschool teacher, waiter, dance instructor and massage therapist in school and has worked as an actor, teacher, copywriter and author since. While working and living in Seoul, Peter completed a Master's in Korean History, and using Korea as a source of inspiration, linguistic and otherwise, penned several books including the controversial book of Korean Slang: As much as a Rat's Tail, translated the scathing graphic novel The Great Successor - Kim Jong Un: a Political Cartoon, created the Idiom Attack series of ESL textbooks as well as passion projects including an Art/Poetry book called Letters: Building an Alphabet with Art and Attitude and a series of children's early readers about the lovable Teddy LeBear, including Teddy's Day and Teddy's Camp. Now living in Minneapolis with his three little ones and lovely wife, Peter continues publishing various works, while pursuing copywriting at The Writer’s Ink, and does web development, video marketing and lead generation for various local businesses through his new business Leadgen Legends.
Peter loves to say "Woo Hoo!" and knows that the simple experiences in life hold the greatest adventures. You can follow Peter at www.peteliptak.com or petespoetry.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book!
"I've studied Japanese for years, and my high school adopted a program where they get a Japanese person (1 a year) to help teach the class and expose us to real Japanese. My teacher got this book to help the assistants figure out what we were saying in English! It's just like our regular textbooks, but sooooo much more useful! I've gone over some of the stuff in here with our assistant teacher and she's getting more comfortable with English, just like I am with Japanese!"
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Classroom Use!
A very good tool. My friend used this in Spain while teaching English, and she said the students began using idioms whenever they could squeeze them into a sentence. It provides great example sentences, and you can easily turn the book into a lesson plan or create flashcards from it. English learners and English teachers alike should have these books.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tool June 1, 2017
It’s a very useful book. I like the many examples and the good organization of the book; it’s easy to read and learn from. The color makes it stick out from other textbooks, too. I would recommend this series to anyone learning English. It really helps you understand everyday English phrases.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great learning tool June 1, 2017
This is a great learning tool. Not only does it provide multiple examples of these idioms in English sentences, it also has fill in the blanks and crosswords to help you learn how to use them. These exercises and the CD make the book stick out (look, an idiom). This means you see the idioms, you hear them, and you practice using them. I’m glad there’s a second book to this one.
