English Gateway Newsletter #3

September is here and most of us getting back to school, work or just back to our regular schedule after the lazy days of summer. This is a truly inspiring month when new people, opportunities and experiences await us at every corner!
 
In this issue:

Gone are the days of 20-pound dictionaries and pencils #2. Electronic dictionaries, lead pencils (or the ones with toys on the tips!), post-it notes and liquid paper are today’s must-have items for school and work.

No topic is more important to brush on when students get back to the school.

Idiomania: Idioms in Taglines
 
Tagline is a short phrase that summarizes the main idea of a product or service that is offered by a business. It comes along with the brand name and is used for advertising purposes.
 
Companies try to make their taglines more memorable to their customers by writing them in a funny or rhyming way, or …by using idiomatic language. Here is an example of an idiom used in the tagline of Hotels.com – an online business that provides information on accommodations:
 
Hotels.com. We know hotels inside and out.
 
If you know something inside and out, you know it very well.
 
Garry helped us to buy a house. He’s an experienced real estate agent who knows the market inside and out.
 
Patricia gave me a lot of useful advice on how to use Photoshop effectively. She really knows this program inside and out.
 
Is there a subject or topic you know inside and out?
Let us know - leave a comment.

Wishing you a very productive school year,
