In The Loop is a reference guide to American English idioms. It will not
only help students learn the meaning of American idioms, but also give
them an understanding of the history, culture, values, and beliefs these
idioms reflect. In addition to the idioms themselves, the book contains
lists of idioms by theme, some ready-to-use classroom activities, and
an index that identifies the original listing and any cross-references
to the idiom.
