Whether you are taking TOEFL iBT, TOEFL CBT or TOEFL Pencil-and-Paper. Kaplans TOEFL Idioms Quiz Book is perfectly designed to help you learn over 350 idioms frequently used in English.
An idiom is a word or phrase that has a special meaning apart from its literal translation – it is usually a metaphor. Only people who are good at speaking English will know what an idiom means. Idioms can be difficult to learn, and they require time and patience to master well.
With this book, read the idiom on the front of the page to determine whether you know it; on the reverse side, its definition and a sample sentence are offered to be sure that you understand its correct usage.
Once you have mastered a particular idiom, clip or fold back the corner of the flashcard so that you can skip over it to get to the words you still need to study.
the words are organized according to their part of speech. In some cases, two parts of speech are common, and we have noted these cases with more illustrative examples.
You will also see some notes in square brackets [ ]. This provides additional information about the origins of the idiom that should make it easier to memorize.
In some cases – mainly with verb phrases – some words are interchangeable. In such situations, we have provided two example sentences, one for each version. The most common version appears on the first page.
