Language Learning Through Metaphors

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Happy is up. Sad is down. Time moves forwards. These are categories of spatial metaphors so common in English phrasal verbs and idiomatic language. We will examine technique in which language learners can understand and use idioms and phrasal verbs through first learning metaphorical themes embedded in the language.
