This is the second volume of a collection of some of the most important and well-known English proverbs & sayings.
Proverbs have been handed down from generation to generation from the earliest times to give advice, and were passed down from mouth to mouth long before any written records. Proverbs are especially good for a language student because they are often metaphorical, and often create a strong visual image in the mind.
Proverbs are a great way of giving students good example sentences which they can memorise and use as models for building their own sentences.
We have tried to keep the caption explaining the proverb as colloquial as possible and as close to spoken English as possible, it contains several keywords (at times perhaps too many) related to the concept expressed by the proverb.
