Abstract

This study attempts to put into practice a strategy (as using conceptual metaphors manifested in Disney Movies) for teaching English idiomatic expressions to young EFL Learners proposed by Rodriguez & Moreno (2009). Given the importance and difficulty of learning idioms, one could be tempted not to lose the golden opportunity of teaching idioms to children. So, this study applies this theoretically proposed strategy on young Iranian EFL learners in real context of classroom. The results revealed high effectiveness of cooperation of conceptual metaphors and their visual manifestations in Disney Movies in teaching English idiomatic expressions to young Iranian EFL Learners.
