Idioms on iPads

Pushing students to the next level in ELA often involves an understanding of idioms.

English Idioms Illustrated and Idioms Lite are two great apps that can help bring idioms (age old sayings) into modern times.

The free version provides illustrations for idioms starting with A and B – you’ll need to upgrade to access the rest
This app acts like a database of idioms, easy to search and navigate

  1. This an awesome app! I used it with our 14yr old sts and they loved to play with the language. It is awesome to hear ESL sts using nuances they would never see or be involved from a boring idioms dictionary. Thank you!
