This book makes American English phrases "duck soup."

If you "take the bull by the horns" are you taking decisive action or running for your life? When you "smell a rat" are you sensing something's wrong or calling an exterminator? For American English speakers, these phrases are part of their everyday language. But if English is your second language, they can be a source of confusion.

"101 American English Idioms" takes the mystery out of these common U.S. expressions and explains their meanings in context. On the audio CD, native speakers read each of the 101 idioms, so you can hear how American English sounds and practice what you have learned.

What Americans really mean when they say . . .Drive someone up a wall--annoy someone greatly Raise a stink--protest strongly Pull someone's leg--fool someone All thumbs--clumsy Shoot the breeze--chat informally Feel like a million dollars--feel wonderful Duck soup--easy, effortless
