CONFESSIONS OF AN IDIOM

beach

Well, now school’s out for summer you’ll all be dying for some extra work over the long, hot months! How about taking a look at this video – see how many idioms you catch. Try learning  some of the ones that you find most interesting or useful; ones that you feel you are most likely to use. Try them out during the holidays with your friends and family (or even any tourists you meet)!

Note: You’ll find a list of all the idioms at the end of the video. But it’s up to you to find out their meaning and use. Just “google” each one and start using some of these fun and colourful expressions. Don’t forget, you can leave a comment below – try to use an idiom in a suitable context (you might try to tell an anecdote, for example) and I’ll let you know if I think you’ve used it appropriately!

SCRIPT
Boy: Buying Christmas presents gives me the HEEBIE-JEEBIES!
Girl: Come on sweety! You always HUFF AND PUFF about it but eventually you do it!
Boy: Yeah! But this year is different. I have to buy a present to the BIGWIG of the company.
Girl: That is not a problem. You´re an EAGER-BEAVER and I´m sure you´ll find the perfect present for him.
Boy: I already know it, but I run into him at the pub last night and he was AS DRUNK AS A SKUNK.
Girl: This is not ILL WILL, but why don´t you buy him a nice TIE DYE t-shirt?
Boy: Great idea! So, that way next time he gets drunk, he will be able to wear it.
Girl: And you can also buy some BLING-BLING stuff. I´m sure they will fit perfectly. So, PEDAL TO THE METAL.
