The phrase “Kill two birds with one stone” is an idiom…but what is an idiom? In simple terms, an idiom is a sentence that does not make sense just by looking at the words, but still has meaning that is understood by the speakers and listeners. You might be thinking, “why should I care about idioms?” Because they are often used in polite or casual conversation, using or reacting to idioms properly becomes an important part of interacting with friends, co-workers, supervisors, or customers. If you have ever found yourself scratching your head at a puzzling sentence unsure how to respond, then this workshop is right for you! Join us as we discuss the meanings behind some of the most commonly used idioms in the English language and better prepare yourself for those future networking or water-cooler conversations.

Cost: FREE! Bring your lunch. The International Student Services office will provide a dessert item.
Meet: Building 535, room 111
