The teacher: a fresh view on idoms

Hello everyone,

Sorry for being so quiet these past few weeks, but the beginning of the school year has been a tough one for me, lots to take on and very little time to devote to this site. But everything seems to be back to where they belong and I can start taking some time for this project, mine and yours. Before I go into the topic of the heading, I would like to invite all of you to post comments and suggestions to improve this blog.

Now, BBC, as usual, have thought of a way to give listeners of all around the world a the opportunity to use their site to learn the language. Therefore, they created a section within their web page which is called BBC Learning English, where you can find all sorts of activities, quizzes, listening, materials and many more. One of those exciting features is as a section called The Teacher, the aim of it being teaching idiomatic expressions in a very fresh and original way. I will not spoil the surprise, but I would like to give you a bite of what the site has in store.

By the way, you have the opportunity to post your own sentences with the idioms explained on the video.

I want to make clear that the copyright of these clips belongs to the BBC.
