Summary: Ideal for ESL conversation and vocabulary classes, The Big Picture introduces students to high-frequency idioms using a metaphorical approach. The text features over 200 idioms categorized into eight units: Ideas, Knowledge, Argument, Emotion, Money, Control, People, and Life. Picture It! sections contain illustrations and example sentences that help students visualize and master each idiom's meaning. Numerous activities, progressing from controlled ...show more to more open-ended, check comprehension, promote conversation, and provide students with relevant practice. Creative assignments, content-based mini-lectures, and suggested topics for student presentations are also included.

  • Understanding and Using Idioms sections present idioms in relevant contexts - such as simulated academic lectures in science and the humanities - which prepare students for future academic work. Expansion exercises follow each section.
  • Personalized Conversation Questions stimulate discussion among students and promote the active use of targeted idioms.
  • Creative Conversations guided pair activities provide realistic conversational exchanges, while "Sentence Completion" exercises demonstrate the use of idioms in the context of natural language.
  • Writing and Speaking features encourage students to write their own creative conversation questions and discuss them with classmates.
  • American Art 101 sections present artists and their work along with writing practice, and open-ended Rewriting with Idioms exercises focus on paragraphs about the featured artists or art works.
