Understanding Idioms Is a Piece of Cake

Interpreting idioms is a piece of cake! In groups, learners discuss the meaning of some common English idioms and choose 10 to use in sentences. Then, they illustrate the silly, literal meanings of those idioms and can engage in a fun online idiom activity (linked). A list of more than 50 idioms is included. Extend this activity by having learners illustrate both the literal and figurative meanings of an idiom.
