In my thesis, I have shown the importance of understanding idiomatic phrases for non-native speakers in daily life like in professional communications, and socializing also their use in film, music, and literature.
Idioms are particularly useful because they give you a new, creative way to express yourself. Rather than saying ‘You’re correct’, you could say ‘You hit the nail on the head’, which is a more complex and interesting expression.
Idioms can also be quite humorous to use, which allows you to express yourself in a more genuine way, including showing off your personality and sense of humor.
The aim of this application is to help non-native speakers understand and use idiomatic phrases. The application will be designed to teach idioms using creative methods. To teach idiomatic phrases through an application or learning game. Playing this educational game will help non-native English speakers to build their communication skills. After completing this game, the players will learn around 25 of the most used idiomatic phrases by only playing once and through quiz they will know when and how to use them.
The selected communities for my research are the non-native English speakers who travels abroad for studies or job and the people who wants to enhance their English language.
When someone travels abroad, they may experience difficulties communicating even if they have learned to speak English if they do not understand the meaning of idiomatic phrases that native speakers use in daily conversations. Whenever a nonnative speaker interacts with the native speaker, he finds it difficult to understand the native language and often feel embarrassed and frustrated because of their inability to understand the idiomatic expression and they feel like they are Inferior as compared to the native speakers. Brining playful approach to this learning experience makes it easier and fun for people to learn and have fun at the same time.
