The 10 Funniest English Idioms

Post  Vincent Law on Sat Oct 26, 2013 5:18 pm

We love idioms because the more idioms one knows, the more native-like his language will sound. By learning idioms, you will learn more about the culture of the place you are living.

But do you know what is an idiom?

Idioms are words, phrases, or expressions that are either grammatically unusual, as in, “Long time, no see!”, or their meaning cannot be taken literally, as in, “It’s raining cats and dogs!”This expression does not mean that cats and dogs are falling from the sky, but it is a metaphorical expres​sion(word picture) that means that it is raining very heavily.
