Idioms

Posted by eastwoldblog on January 25, 2010

As we are now looking at Stories from Other Cultures, particularly the Middle East and Bahrain, I thought that we would look at Idioms as a feature of writing.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words:
It’s better to actually do something than just talk about it.

Get Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed:
Someone who is having a horrible day.

Keep your chin up:
To remain joyful in a tough situation.

Idioms are those little phrases that get used alot by native speakers that might be difficult to understand to someone learning the language new.

Can you think of any other Idioms that you or your parents/grandparents/family members/friends use?

There are some new links on the right of the page to help you find out more.

Share them as comments.
