English Idioms in use Intermediate – cambridge – Michael McCarthy and Felicity O’Dell

How is the book organised?

The book has 60 two-page units. The left-hand page presents the idioms that are worked on in the unit. You will usually find an explanation of the meaning of each idiom, an example of it in use and, where appropriate, any spccial notes about its usage. The right-hand page checks that you have understood the information on the left-hand page by giving you a series of exerciscs that practise the material just presented. The exercises pay particular attention to checking your understanding of the idioms and how they arc used because this is more important for most learners than being able to actively use the idioms.
