They come naturally to native speakers who use them spontaneously without giving them much thought. However, non-native speakers of English have been found to lack the ability to use such expressions adequately, therefore creating a gap in proficiency. To be proficient in English, speakers are required to have a clear comprehension of figurative language. Idioms fall into this category. The more a non native speaker of English is able to use idiomatic expressions, the closer he or she is to English language competence. What are idiomatic expressions?

Definitions and clear cut examples have been set out to fully clarify how to use them. Some idioms and phrasal verbs are recycled in the examples for further consolidation. By becoming familiar with these important elements of the English language, you will undoubtedly increase your proficiency.
