Why was this book written?
It was written to help you take your knowledge of idioms to a more advanced
level. The ability to use idioms accurately and appropriately is an indicator
that you have a truly advanced level of English, and so this book pays attention
to the productive use of idioms as well as to the comprehension of their
meaning. Many of you will have already worked with English Idioms in Use
Intermediate, and this book builds on the work done there. However, it does not
matter if you have gained your knowledge of idioms in a different way. We do not
assume that you have used English Idioms in Use Intermediate, although we do
present and practise different idioms from those that were presented in the
How were the idioms in this book selected?
The idioms which are presented in this book were mainly selected from those
identified as significant by the CAN CODE corpus of spoken English, developed at
the University of Nottingham in association with Cambridge University Press, and
the Cambridge International Corpus of written and spoken English (now known as
the Cambridge English Corpus). The idioms selected are all also to be found in
the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary 4th Edition, where you can find
additional usage notes and examples. You can search this dictionary online by
