I want to improve the english knowledge of ESL people(I'm myself an ESL student). I too wanted to make it animatic. Hence, I decided to make it a GAME.
Game : Idioms Corner (One Idiom a day).
What To Do:
1) Post one idiom a day(along with its meaning and examples).
2) The last letter of the idiom will form the first letter of the next day's idiom.
3) ONLY ONE IDIOM MUST BE POSTED A DAY, since if we allow multiple idioms, it will be difficult for the english learners to learn them.
4) Once an Idiom is posted, others can GIVE MORE EXAMPLES for that day's idiom.
Meaning and Examples must be present.
The posts containing new idioms must include all the following parts:
To aid better understandability, lets impose some rules on the Subject textbox!
1) In case of posting new idiom the it should contain : "New Idiom".
2) In case of giving more examples it should contain : "More Examples : Idiom".
3) In case of any doubts or for discussion it should contain : "Discussion : Idiom".
Enjoy the Game!!! It's going to be raining Idioms.
