The straw that broke the camel's back
First things first, our extra activity for April will be next Friday April 26th at 17:00. There were equal votes for cooking and exhibit visit, but I haven't yet found a good space to do cooking so I will confirm the plan as soon as possible, but mark your calendars!
This week we worked with some idioms such as the final straw, speak of the devil, take it with a grain of salt, fish out of water, and many more in combination with some storytelling. We tried our best to incorporate some new idioms into our spoken English. There are many resources online to work with idioms, at 5MinuteEnglish 1Language, and ManyThings.
This week for listening, try the BBC Series The Teacher which explains many common idioms. For original version listening, try listening to a radio story in original version from audiofil.es or something from StoryCorps and see if you can pick out any idioms!
For reading, try this idioms exercise or play around with the site Eye on Idioms. Can you guess the right answer? Or try reading this Alien story and putting it in order. For original version reading, I suggest an article of your choice from The Feature or Arts and Letters Daily.
Last but not least, try writing a short story with the story prompt generator. Extra points if you can use an idiom!
