American English Proverbs for Android

By Mebb .Ltd Free

Developer's Description

American English Proverbs is designed to help students of English understand and use proverbs that relate to everyday situations. The proverbs in this app are grouped in eight thematic sections, in order to facilitate student understanding and acquisition of proverbs for use in particular contexts. Within each section the proverbs are listed alphabetically.

Proverbs are relatively easy for nonnative speakers to learn and use. Once the concept of the proverb is understood, students can often relate it to similar concepts, in their own languageswhereas correct, natural usage of idioms requires more practice and a better "feel" for the language.

A cartoon and a short paragraph or dialogue is provided to help illustrate the meaning and usage of each proverb. The paragraphs and dialogues serve two purposes: to give an understanding of the proverb in a normal everyday setting and to enhance the student's awareness of natural American speech.

American English Proverbs is an excellent tool for teaching an aspect of English that is such an integral part of the language. This app also serves as a springboard for conversation about some of the similarities and differences between various languages and cultures. Both nonnative and native speakers of English will benefit from and enjoy the wealth of linguistic and cultural information to be found in this selection of 101 American English proverbs.
