As an ESL teacher, idioms are one of my favorite things to teach. In order to truly understand a language, we have to understand more than just basic grammar conjugations - we have to know slang, jokes, idioms, and the many other things that make a language unique. If you're looking for something fun and dynamic for your next ESL class, have a look at our teacher-led lesson plan Idioms that use Anatomy Vocabulary!

An idiom is a unique saying or phrase made up of words that, when combined, take on a whole new meaning than the individual words within the phrase. Idioms are common and students hear them every day, but they might not understand what they mean. They are tricky but important to teach to new English learners, especially as their listening and speaking skills improve.

Imagine being a new English learner and being told to “break a leg” or “pick his brain”. Idioms that use anatomy can be weird and downright scary, so this lesson is a must! Students will have a blast learning and practicing these idioms!

This lesson plan is perfect for teens or adults. Use it in your next online or traditional, screen-enabled ESL class! Students love learning idioms and after this lesson, your students are guaranteed to feel more fluent than ever!
