The aim of this blog is to serve as a meeting point to those who study or have studied English philology and, more broadly, to all those who love literature and language.

Face Up to Phrasals is one of the many sections in the BBC Learning English website. Its structure is nice (three sets of short spoken dialogues, each of them showing a particular phrasal verb in context) and allows learners to measure out the number of phrasal verbs they want to learn or revise at a time.

Other sites, such as English Idioms & Idiomatic Expressions provide explanations and examples of a good number of idioms sorted out according to topic.

In case we just want to test our knowledge on these items, we can try some of the exercises collected in Self-Study Idiom Quizzes.

There are even videos to help students widen their range of idiomatic expression, such as this one about ‘dog idioms’.
