LWC International Student Program is going bananas
By Autumn Lynn
Going Bananas is as easy as pie? Oh really, we will have banana pie? The use of idioms can create an extra layer of difficulty when trying to communicate in a foreign language.
To help combat this, LWC ISP Ambassadors Erica Smith and Brandon Reed offered a lesson centered on English idioms and figurative language on Wednesday, September 24th at the ISP house on 304 Lindsey Wilson Street in Columbia, KY. A group of International Students from South Korea and Japan participated in this tutoring session.
The students received slips of paper with idioms on them and were asked to decipher the meaning based on the definition and an example with phrases such as 'all ears' and 'cold feet.' It was amazing to see the transformation during the session, when a student's rather blank impression changed into the "aha" impression. Don't be surprised when you run into one of them and they will tell you that they no longer have cold feet...SMILE.
