English Idioms and Expressions Activity

Directions: Click here for a list of expressions from the movie "The Net". You only need to learn about some of these expressions (ask your teacher which ten you should use) so you can tell the other students about these expressions. Here are the steps in this assignment.

  1. Find the meaning of your expressions. You can try looking them up in a dictionary, but most of them you will have to ask an American what the expression means.

  2. Next, find or make an illustration (a picture) for each of the expressions. You can find a picture in a magazine or on the World Wide Web or you can draw a picture or take a photograph that shows what the expression means.

  3. Third, you need to make a sentence using the expression.

Ask your teacher when this assignment is due.
