Another Game With English Expressions/ Idioms/ Phrases - Let's enjoy learning together, shall we?

 

Hello everybody!

 

Learning English word by word is not enough for us to become fluent.

Have you ever confused when you hear someone said: "I'm still finding my feet" or "it cost an arm and a leg". 

Learning English phrases is very important.

Let's have a think. How many sentences you can make from 1000 English words? And are you sure all of them would be correct? And how
about with 100 English phrases? How many correct sentences you can make? I think you must got the point.

Taking Inspiration from learning together with game. I'd like to post this topic for us to practice in relaxing and help each other to fulfill the missing of what we are learning everyday. And beside, we will have a chance to memorize them by recalling over... and over again...

So, why not?

Let's share to be shared and enrich our English right now, shall we? 

It's time to take a look at the rules:

Write ONLY ONE your English phrase/idiom/expression, don't write more than one at the same time, how would happen if you were 
"choked" in learning them? ;-)  just pick one per day, and remember it.

Explain it (and accompany the hyperlink if you want)  BUT don't write any example for it, then give an example for the English phrase/idiom/expression was posted by the previous friend.

You can practice by giving some more examples for the phrases/idioms/expressions were given here before. NO LIMIT :)

 ********

What you should do in your turn would be like :

Suppose that :

         The previous idiom : find my feet

         My sentence: I've just got a new job for a few days. So I'm still finding my feet.

         Your idiom: Cost an arm and a leg

         Meaning of idiom: it's very expensive

Hi guys!

Let me start.

Suppose that this phrase was posted by someone not me :P

"I'm still finding my feet": means you are trying to get use to a new situation or to become qualified to do something new.

Ex: Scarlett has only been at her new job for some days. So, she's still finding her feet.

My phrase today:

"keep your chin up!" : means to encourage someone to remain positive in a tough situation.

Be  cool as a cucumber

Hi hafida, hehe... look at your cucumber, I just want to.... eat it... :P

BTW, "be cool as a cucumber", is it an idiom?

hehehe, yes i think

Example:He had very bad news last night, but he came to the office as cool as a cucumber this morning as if nothing had happened.
he was cool as a cucumber even right after he was fire

Oh hafida,

So, this phrase has the same mean with "keep your chin up"?

Many thanks for such an interesting phrase! :)

he always tries to keep me chin up when i feel down because of the long and tiring days.

"it's a cup of my tea too" :   means i like idioms too

@ hafida:

My example: hafida like learning English idioms. It's a cup of my tea too!

top banana :the leader of a group or an organization.

nice activity thanks for sharing :))

Very interesting phrase, dear pandora!

I've tried finding some examples of this phrase, I see there is another meaning of it : The main comic in a burlesque show... thanks for sharing such an impressive one :)

My example: Who is the top banana of this game? is it Scarlett?  :D:D:D
