Hi, my name's Fred and I'm a former advertising professional who now teaches English in Rome, Italy. I have developed over 12 educational courses on Udemy with over 12,000 satisfied students. I'm very excited to bring you this new course on English communication idioms! Let's begin:

Welcome to this fun and easy guide to popular communication idioms used in the English language! 

This course contains short and simple lectures which provide real examples to help explain the meaning of each idiom. We learn idioms, because they can help us communicate more naturally with native (or mother tongue speakers).

I don't need to study idioms, ther most important part of a language is grammar!

Yes, you need to study grammar. You also need to practice writing, and speaking, and listening......etc. However, learning things such as idioms (or proverbs, phrasal verbs) help us develop our language skills to the next level. If you want to really enjoy the local culture of a country, it helps if you can speak in the same way as the local people.

Enjoy practicing your new skills!

This course provides you with an opportunity to practice your knowledge. You will find plenty of practice activities to help you grow confidence around using idioms.

Remember, learning a language should be fun and not stressful. I hope you enjoy the course, and I look forward to your feedback.

Fred
