1000 Images on the Tip of my Tongue

1000 images on the tip of my tongue is an interactive site focusing on idiomatic expressions that have the same meaning in French, English and Spanish, but cannot be translated word for word.

This trilingual directory provides more than 3000 idiomatic expressions classified according to themes. Each of them is inserted into a short text which illustrates its meaning and has a corresponding audio file. Listening to the file helps situate the learner in a real context which contributes to a better overall understanding.

This instructional material has been designed not only for English, French and Spanish second language courses but also for translation courses taught throughout Qu├ębec colleges.
