MATI 2020 Webinar Series - Test Your English Fluency

  • 12/14/2020
  • 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM


In this workshop, you'll be challenged to complete phrases and idioms familiar to any native English speaker, such as catch _____ winks;  caught _____-handed;  you snooze, you _____;  every Tom, Dick, and _____;  mum's the _____.  Can you interpret/translate sample sentences into your working languages?  If English is your second language, can you incorporate these idioms into your work?  Join us for a fun hour of idiomatic vocabulary-building.
