The goal of this paper is to suggest potential learning material for metaphors and idioms of Modern Greek as a foreign language based on the cognitive linguistic approach. Teaching and learning metaphors and idioms is deemed to be quite difficult for teachers and learners of every language and that’s why the adoption of the cognitive framework is believed to facilitate their acquisition, since their learning according to cognitive linguistics, is not based on traditional methods such as alphabetical order or memorization but on the discovery of deeper semantic relations on which a major part of metaphors and metonyms of the Greek language relies on.
