Idioms are the essences of Vietnamese language. They are the shortened and condensed expression of life experiences passed on to many generations by our descendants. To learn more about the concept of ‘idioms’, their types, the similarities and the differences between ‘idioms’ versus ‘proverb’, as well as the correct use of idioms according to situations and purposes, our Dewey 7th graders spent 2 months on a project named ‘Idioms from all directions’
After a serious research, the 7th graders well caught their teachers by surprise, time after time, with a variety of diverse and unique products. Not only bringing idioms onto paintings, the Dewey students also sent idioms into plays and onto the stage, turning the seemingly dry idioms from their books into a lively and relevant aspect of life to the audience.
These creative learning products are the clear evidence for the ‘Learning by doing’ methodology that is utilized by the school.
