My name is Daniel Shepherd and I was an English teacher in Japan from 1995 to 2009 where I ran three language schools and taught students of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds.
During my time in Japan, I realised that learners of English often find it difficult to use idioms and phrasal verbs. When I searched for a textbook to help my students, I found reference books on idioms and phrasal verbs, but I couldn’t find any books showing how to use them in everyday conversation.
In the end, I decided to write a book and create a website to give examples of idioms & phrasal verbs in conversation to help students learn how to use them in daily life.
I also teach live online seminars on idioms and phrasal verbs.
I hope you find my book and this website useful. Thanks for visiting!
