Over 1,000 English idiom flashcards for your smartphone!
IdiomLand has just released version 2.0 after launching months ago as an idiom game.
PROS: In its current iteration, IdiomLand offers 1,000+ fun, engaging and retro-designed idiom vocabulary cards and examples. Unlike most idiom lists you find on the web, Idiom Land only includes idioms that native speakers actually use. If you’re in doubt, just browse through the video cards where you’ll see these very idioms used in some of the most popular films made in the English language.
CONS: It’s only a supplemental tool and won’t help you develop fluency in English.
Learn English idioms through story-based play
IdiomLand meets a need for ESL learners that most language learning tools leave out: idioms!
PROS: The game’s design and features are a lot of fun. Lesson’s are thorough with quizzes at the end to ensure you remember the idioms.
CONS: The idioms used in the game are likely ones you’ve already heard before. And if you want to learn fast, this story-based game isn’t the quickest.
Note: As of 2015, The IdiomLand Game is out in favor of their flashcards.
