How To Learn Idioms and Speak Like a Native....

What's Up? We hope you are having a good day today.

When we meet my friends, that's what we say: "What's Up?"

Of course, this phrase means "Hello, how are you?"

"What's Up" is a very common and very easy idiom. An idiom is a phrase that has a different meaning than the words in it. You cannot understand an idiom by knowing each word in it. You must understand it as a whole-- as a phrase.

Native speakers use hundreds of idioms everyday. We don't even think about it.

To understand a native speaker, you absolutely MUST learn idioms.

**How Will You Learn Idioms?

Unfortunately, you don't learn idioms from textbooks or schools. But you can learn them.

To start, buy a Dictionary of American Idioms. Use it to understand idioms you hear in movies and conversations. Keep these new idioms in a notebook, and review them quickly everyday.

You'll learn idioms from REAL conversations between native speakers. Try to record two native speakers talking to each other. Then use the recording to learn idioms.
Of course, you can also use our Real Conversation Lessons to learn idioms. All of our lessons use real, authentic conversations-- which contain many idioms. You learn common idioms very fast when you use our lessons.

If you don't use our lessons, just be patient. It takes time to learn idioms, but you can do it.

You then speak and understand the real English that is used by native speakers.

Good luck,
