English Idioms

Monday, November 1st, 2010

In order to get a score of 6.5 and higher is IELTS it would be very helpful to know at least a few idiomatic expressions, something like “A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush” or ” the world is my oyster”. It takes a lot of effort to implement these idioms in daily conversation or simply in everyday life but it is worth it and it is also fun.

So, here is the list of my favorite expressions:

A Piece of Cake

Blue Moon

Couching Potato

A Whale of a Time

Go Back To Square One

Throw Caution to the Wind

Play with Fire

Tip of one’s Tongue
