Idiom of the Week — “Take In”



Students that come to EC Miami for academic English courses certainly have a lot to take in on their first day.  Not only are they in a new place with a new language, but they have to learn about the school and the different policies and expectations.  It can be a lot to take in, especially after you’ve traveled so far!  Above we see Rafael, one of our teachers, giving the new students an introduction to Miami and Miami Beach.  Hopefully, after they take in this introduction, they won’t feel so overwhelmed by so many new things.

To take in is to experience, or to enjoy by viewing.  You can take in a movie, a TV show, or even take in a book!
