Nice. I like this pack. Idioms are an area that are often difficult for students, so this is welcome. The Guide is my favourite part. Most interesting!

It might be nice to have some more creative activities for students to do. Perhaps comic strips where the idioms can be inserted to replace phrases (eg, "You shouldn't be ungrateful for this present. Just be glad you got it!" could be replaced by "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"). It would also be good to have some information about where idioms came from, and our reasons for saying them.
