About the Book

Talking Images: Idioms is a photocopiable resource book created by teachers for teachers.

Designed for busy teachers, each of the 12 themed units includes:

  • Comprehensive teacher’s notes including task answers and follow-up ideas
  • Original images for introducing and teaching idioms
  • Photocopiable worksheets containing tasks for both closed practice and communicative production.

Each unit is designed to cover a 45-60 minute lesson and is suitable for intermediate (B1) students upwards.

Here’s what teachers are saying:

This book is great, the lesson plans are clearly laid out and the language and content are exactly what I and my students need. Highly recommended. – Suzanne Naylor (British Council, Barcelona)

The authors have come up with a book that’s full of useful high frequency idioms and loads of ideas for teaching them in the English Language Teaching classroom. In fact, there’s very little for the teacher to do – it’s all here. Photocopiable worksheets, teacher’s notes and an index of idioms for reference. The worksheets in this book are fun, and they work. Thank you! – S Kay

I thoroughly enjoy teaching from Talking Images. I find the lessons varied in terms of the skills practised and very well designed. I find the idiom images fantastic and a really tangible way for my students to remember the idioms! By the end of a class recently, one intermediate level student even made a joke, accurately using two idioms which was fantastic! This is now a popular go-to book in my school. I look forward to using it more in the future! – Hannah Bironzo (ADOS. Hertford College EFL Programmes, Oxford)
