    Question teaching expressions and idioms

    I've found your long lists of expressions and idioms categorised conveniently for use to supplement lessons - My question is what are some interesting new ways to teach these?
    I'm aware that you shouldn't teach too many at once, I've done matching meanings , gap-filling and creating a dialogue of 8 - 12 lines in pairs to present to the class, including at least 3 new expressions. My intermediate students in our afternoon speaking and listening class really enjoy them.
    Does anyone have any other ideas?

    Re: teaching expressions and idioms

    I am a native speaker so I would like you to post some of the expressions and I will see what comes to my mind.
