Все идиомы английского языка

Исключительно для удобства наших посетителей, мы выставляем здесь подборку идиом английского языка, имеющихся на нашем ресурсе. Чтобы вам проще было приступить к изучению идиом и аббревиатур английского языка мы разместили их в алфавитном порядке. Так гораздо легче отыскивать необходимое устойчивое выражение в процессе учебы. К тому же, к каждой идиоме прилагается описание на английском языке и примеры ее употребления. Все идиомы, аббревиатуры, а также устойчивые выражения, рекомендуемые нами к изучению, переведены и описаны достаточно грамотно. Их разработкой занимались профессиональные лингвисты, специализирующиеся на языкознании, применяя подходы художественного перевода.

Идиомы характеризуются тем, что они присущи исключительно своему языку, не переводятся на иные языки, являясь устойчивыми оборотами речи. Смысл идиом принято понимать из комплекса значений их составляющих. Такая черта, как «непереводимость» идиом иногда становится некой «преградой» для людей штудирующих английский язык. Некоторые, дабы не оказаться в глупой ситуации, стараются избегать идиоматических выражений в своей практике. Но, нужно понимать, что живой язык не может обойтись без устойчивых оборотов речи. Поэтому, тем ученикам, которые стремятся подтянуть язык до высокого уровня, рекомендуется изучать эту область.

Чем лучше вы освоите идиомы, тем ближе вам станут культура и традиции носителей английского языка. Кроме того идиомы делают язык богаче и живее, добавляя ему колоритности. Правильное применение идиоматических выражений в английской речи, означает, что ученик действительно делает большие успехи в овладении английским языком. Он не только сможет понять человека, для которого английский является родным, но и что самое главное, сможет четко донести ему свои мысли и также быть понятым.
