The Increased Necessity of Augmenting the Teaching of Commonly Used English Language Idioms, Clichs, Proverbs, Slang Words, and Expressions with Context Examples in the ESL Academic Setting
by Darold Edw. Foot
The need for increased awareness of the necessity and function of incorporating into ESL curriculum commonly used English language idioms, clichs, colloquialisms, proverbs, slang words, and expressions is crucial. This research will reduce the number of unintentional, potentially detrimental, and misunderstood words or statements spoken in the ESL setting by native English-speaking ESL teachers and provide the ESL facilitator and students flexibility in communicating English with a wide array of variations.
The native English-speaking ESL teacher and the Spanish-speaking ESL students in Puerto Rico and other multi-lingual countries, elementary, secondary, and post-secondary ESL levels, are the targeted population.About the Author
