We often use a variety of common everyday expressions without even realizing it. Idioms are usually focused towards a particular culture. These are sayings that are not meant to be taking literally. Other expressions are known to impart wisdom that have spanned through generations. We call these expressions proverbs. Proverbs that are very well known and have been known to be part of a culture are called adages. These worksheets will help students not only identify these expressions, but interpret them as well.
