ESL Students like Vocabulary Learning Fun’s ESL Idioms Game

We believe our new game, Slang, will be one of your favorite online ESL activities. “Slang” teaches American idioms, or those unique phrases and sayings that don’t make sense to you! Idioms are very hard for ESL students to understand because a literal translation does not reveal their true meaning. Instead, the meaning of an idiom is “figurative,” or symbolic, and known only through longtime common use among native speakers. As a result, American idioms are especially challenging for ESL learners. Slang introduces you to a wide range of American idioms through interactive ESL quizzes. You’ll get excellent ESL practice as you play, and if you miss a question, Slang will explain the answer. Slang is a great ESL game you’ll want to play again and again!
