The American Language Course – Book of Idioms is designed to assist in the acquisition of current American English idiomatic expressions.
The American Language Course – Book of Idioms was written with English as a Second or Foreign Language (ESLIEFL) students in mind.

Idiomatic expressions are listed in alphabetical order, and students can find example sentences for every idiom. Certain expressions are grouped by a common keyword. Within each grouping, expressions are alphabetized, numbered, and placed in brackets with example sentences following. Expressions with multiple meanings are presented in a readable manner with each meaning and its example sentence indicated by a lowercase letter in parentheses.
