Summary

Against All Odds is an idioms text designed to help high-intermediate and advanced ESL/EFL students to develop more natural-sounding spoken English and to improve their ability to understand naturally spoken English. Every effort has been made to include idioms that students will find useful in their everyday lives and will often encounter in conversation with native English speakers. The number of idioms per chapter has purposely been limited to 15 - 17 so that students can truly acquire them for active use. In addition, each chapter's idioms are grouped semantically to further facilitate acquisition of the idioms. While some of the idioms are the traditional phrasal verbs, most are not.

  • Idioms in everyday communicative contexts
  • Ample role plays, problem solving, and discussions based on detailed situations
  • Pre-listening and listening exercises
  • Organized by semantic groupings
