Transcripts

1. Welcome to Idioms and Expressions: All right. Welcome everyone to learn English online. This is my channel on skill share on on this channel. On on this page, I make classes for beginner students in English, want toe, learn more English, speak more English and practice more English. So this class is called idioms and expressions. In this class, we're going to be learning about idioms and expressions. What are they were going to be taking many, many, many different examples off idioms and expressions, nice and simple. So let's start straight away. 2. 1-7 Idioms and Expressions: Okay, so welcome back. Everyone to idioms and expressions in this particular class, we're going to be taking idioms and expressions from number one. The number seven on. We're going to be explaining through pictures on examples. Okay, but let's first off start by saying that idioms and expressions are simply ways in English to give a different meaning. So we use words together, but they have a different meaning. And we used him in certain occasions or events. What does that mean? If the stick some examples on, we will see the first off idiom. An expression number one. Hit the sack. Now, as you can see here in the picture, we have a picture of a lovely cat. What is the cat doing? Is the cat playing around? No. Is the cat standing? No, it's the cat eating know What is the cat doing? The cat is sleeping. Okay, so hit The sack basically means toe go and sleep. So if I tell you, say to you. So if I say to you, I'm going to go and hit the sack. That means I'm going to go to sleep or I'm going to go to rest. What? I'm going to go and lie down. So that's what it means. Hit the sack. Very good. How about a demon? Expression Number two cost an arm and a leg. Okay. Now, of course. How many arms do we have? Two. Very good. How many legs do we have? Two. Very good. So because we only have two arms and because we only have two legs, so they are very, very valuable. We use our arms and legs for many, many different things. Right? So imagine if I go to buy our car, for example, or a mobile phone or house on. I have to pay my own arm. What? I have to pay my own leg. What do you think this house is? A cheap or does it cost a lot and a lot of money. Very good. It costs a lot of money. So if something costs me an arm and a leg, that means it's very expensive. Very valuable. Okay. Like a new mobile or a new phone or a new house or a new car. It can cost me an arm and a leg. As you can see in the picture, we have a lot off coins a lot of gold coins, meaning that there's something expensive. Very good. How about idiom on expression number three? A piece of cake, of course. Who doesn't love cake? Right? We all love cake, as you can see it in the picture. It looks like a very nice sort of cheese slash fruit cake, right, maybe Cherries or Berries. So it's very nice right now. If I say something is a piece of cake that does that mean that it's delicious? What does it simply mean? That something is very easy. Like If I see this exam is a piece of cake, that means no problem, no difficulty. It's going to be very easy for me to do it and to solve it right? So if it's a piece of cake, that means it's very easy. It's very nice, almost as if it is a really a really piece of cake. Very good about medium and expression. Number four See eye to eye. Now imagine if you are standing in front of somebody, but this somebody was standing in front of you, is a bit shorter or is a bit older than you. So are your eyes going to be on the same level. What are they going to be different On a different level, Of course. They're going to be on a different level. Okay, so this is an expression that sort of elaborate on this. If I see it, if I see eye to eye with somebody, it's almost as if we are on the same level. Okay, but it's an expression. So that means what we both think the same way. We both agree. Okay? We both have the same level off ideas, for example. Okay, So if I see eye to eye with my mother or I see eye to eye with my wife or I see eye to eye with my friends, maybe I don't see eye to eye with strangers. Maybe I don't see eye to eye with my boss at work. Okay. So to see eye to eye, that simply means to agree with somebody. If I don't see eye to eye, that means I don't agree with somebody very good about idiom and expression. Number five. Now, this is a very, very common expression that people use all the time, especially in the UK When we say, for example, break a leg now. Obviously, it sounds a bit weird and it sounds a bit rude. Maybe if I'm telling somebody, go and break your leg. No, but it doesn't mean that it simply means good luck. If I tell somebody, break a leg. That means I'm wishing this person good luck. Good luck in his job interview would look good luck in his marriage. For example. Good luck in buying a new car Could be anything. So break a leg. That means what? Good luck. Very good. How about a demand expression? Number six. Now, as you can see here on the picture, what do we have? We have a book, right? But what's inside this book? Do you know? Do you know what's inside this book? Even know it's outside of the what's undercover. There's nothing on the cover. There's nothing. There's nothing on the cover, and there's nothing inside. We can know, right? We can't tell. How would we know? How can we know what's inside this book? We have to actually read it on the inside, right? Very good. So this is the expression that says what? Don't judge a book by its cover. What does that mean? It's not talking only about books could be about anything else in the world. Okay, Like, for example, if I meet somebody and I don't like this person from the first time, I think that he's a bit rude or is a bit too quiet or something. And I tell you, don't judge a book by its cover. That means what? Try and get to know this person more. Don't judge this person from the first time. Try and get to know him more, right. If I don't like my first day at work, I might say to myself, Don't judge a book by its cover. Why? Because the second they could be easier. The third they could be more fun. The fourth they could be Fantastic day. Right? So don't judge a book by its cover. This is a very, very nice and a very good expression that anybody can use and in many, many different situations. So don't judge a book by its cover. Simply means I don't judge something unless you know it first. Because we can all make mistakes. Very good. How about a demon expression number seven once in a blue moon. Now, what can you see here in the picture, we can see a picture off a full moon. Right on. This is not. Actually it's not only a full moon. It's a type of moon called the Blue Moon in which the moon becomes bigger. Right? So when does this happen? Does it happen? Doesn't happen every day. No. Does it happen every month? No, right. It takes years, I think for the blue moon to appear right. So if I tell somebody, if I asked somebody, do you go to the gym? And he says I go once in a blue moon. What does that mean? Does he mean Because it means that he goes every day? No. He means that he rarely goes to the gym, so it almost never happens. So once in a blue moon means almost never happens. Rarely rarely happens. It doesn't happen a lot. So once in a blue moon for me, for example, I don't drink tea so or I rarely drink tea. So I could say I drink tea once in a blue moon. That means almost never every now and again. Very good. That's it, guys. These are the 1st 7 idioms and expressions Let's go over the Let's Go over the meaning again. So if I hit the sack just like the cat walls to hit the sacraments, to sleep, to go, to go, to lie down interest. If something is going to cost me an arm and a leg, that means it's very, very expensive, like a mobile. The new mobile for a new car. If something is a piece of cake, that means it's very, very easy for me. And I can do it easily If I see toe. If I see eye to eye with somebody like my friends or my my wife, that means what I agree with this person and we have the same ideas. We are on the same level, right? If I tell somebody, break a leg and I'm telling him Good luck. I wish you good luck. I wish you do your best If I tell somebody. Don't judge a book by its cover then I mean, don't judge something from the first time on. Don't judge something before you know it first, because we can all make mistakes on number seven. The last expression is once in a blue moon. That means something happens rarely almost never happens. It doesn't happen a lot. So it's once in a blue moon only it only happens once every blue moon. Fantastic guys. So that said, these are the questions you can think about these questions. You can answer them in the project section. You can download it and saw all of them. You can download the file and solve them. So question one. For example. When did you hit the sack? Yesterday? Question two. What is something that cost you an arm and a leg? Question three. What is something that you consider a piece of cake? Number four? Who do you see eye to eye with? So that's it, guys. I hope you enjoyed this lesson and found it interesting. In the next class, we're going to be discussing idioms from number eight to number 14. Thank you. 3. 8-14 Idioms and Expressions: All right. So welcome back, everyone to idioms and expressions. This is the second lesson on in this lesson. We're going to be taking idioms and expressions from number eight to number 14. Okay, In the previous lesson, we said that idioms and expressions are ways in English to give a different meaning on we discussed on. We discussed different examples and different pictures in this class. We're going to be discussing from 8 to 14. Okay, How about a demon? Is pressure number eight Better late than never. Okay. What can you see in this picture? You can see a man. He looks as if he's wearing a suit and a tie. Andi looks as if he's going for a business meeting or something. Right? Something that's very important. And he looks worried. Why? Because he's looking at his watch and he realizes that he looks a bit maybe a bit late. Okay, but sometimes being late is better than not going at all. Okay, so if I go to the business meeting at the end, this is still better than not appearing at all. If I go to the birthday party at the end, it's better than not appearing at all. Okay, if I apologize to my friend at the end, then still it's better than not apologizing at all. Okay, So better late than never is an expression. That means doing something is better than not doing anything told Doing something, even if it's late is better than not doing anything at all. And we can use this expression in many different situations. Okay, How about number nine? This idiom expression is Call it a day present. But what can you see in this picture? We see a man on. He looks as if it is sitting at the computer or the laptop. And maybe he's working. Or maybe it's trying to do something. But he looks as if he's tired, right? He has his hands on his head. He looks as if he's had enough. It's too much for him. So what do you think this person should do if he's tired, if he can get the solution, you can do what he really wants. Should he continue working? Should he call it a day? In other words, should he stop for now and then continued? Maybe tomorrow. Okay. So what? This quality, They mean college today means to stop to take a break and to continue the next day. We can do this in many things. Like if I can find something that I lost, I've searched everywhere. I can say OK, I'm going to call it a day and I'll try again tomorrow. That means what enough for today and I'll try again tomorrow. Okay, If I go to a place I want to buy something is very, very crowded or very busy. We can say, OK, I'm going to call it a day on. We can try. Try again tomorrow. Okay? So to call it a day means to stop and to try again the next day. Very good. How about Number 10? Pull someone's leg. As you can see here we have a picture and there's a man, and he looks as if he's laughing. What? He's joking, right? So if he's laughing or his joking, Do you think he said something? Seriously? What? Maybe he said something and he's kidding. He said something and he's kidding, right? Very good. So if I tell you, are you pulling my leg? Or if I pull somebody's leg, that means what I'm I'm joking I'm kidding with this person, okay? I'm not saying the truth, okay? Like if I say I'm going toe travel tomorrow, not coming to work and he says really know And then I say, No, I'm just pulling your leg. That means No, I'm just kidding. OK, so it's a nice expression on bond. There's nothing wrong in joking here and then, Okay. So to pull somebody's leg means the joke to laugh to kid with somebody. Okay, to say something. Maybe that it's it's not really serious or not really true. Okay. But I'm only doing it because I'm just kidding or joke. So there's nothing wrong in that. Very good. How about this picture? A demon expression number 11 under the wet. As you can see, I think the picture is very clear. We can see that there's ah, man or a woman. A woman. This is a woman. I think in this picture on, she looks very tired, right? She looks sick. She looks as if she can't move. She's she got a runny nose, maybe. Or she sneezing. Right? So do you think she's healthy? What do you think? She's sick? She's sick, right? Very good. So this is what it means to be under the weather. It's an expression, right under the weather. It means that you are that the person is sick. Okay, So instead of so the next time, for example, you want you want to take off to take a vacation from work? You can say to your boss. Sorry, but I am under the weather. Very good. How about the next one? Number 12 when pigs fly? What can you see in this picture? Obviously we can see a pig right now. Do pigs have wings like birds? Of course not. No. Right. So can pigs fly? Never. Right? They can't fly. Okay, so I will I will. I ever see a pig flying in the sky? Never. Right. So this is something that will never happen. Pigs will never be able to fly. Right. So if I tell you, um, I don't have a lot of money, but I'm going to travel tomorrow. Is this going to happen? No way. Right. So it's going to happen only when pigs fly. In other words, it's never, ever going to happen. Okay, so when pigs fly means something that will never, ever happen. Okay, Very good. How about this one? Number 13. Adding fuel to the fire. Now. What can you see here in the picture? Obviously there is. What fires. Now imagine. God forbid. If there's fire somewhere, what should you do? How do you put out this fire? You get water. Of course. Right. You get water or you get a blanket. Right or cover. So I must put out this fire. I must extinguish this fire using water. Okay, well, I imagine if I came Andi, I had fueled with me fuel or petrol or gas on. I added this fuel on the fire. What will happen to the fire? Off course, Of course. Of course. It's going to grow. It's going to be even worse, right? Very good. So this expression actually is the same thing. It means in any situation in the world. If I am making the things worse than it's as if I am adding fuel to the fire. Like for example, if I my wife is upset with me, for example. Okay? And then I go and I try to joke with her and she's still very upset. Am I going to make her happy now, or she's going to be more upset and angrier. She might be more upset and angry, right? So it's as if I'm adding fuel to the fire. Right? If, um, if I say something bad to my friend and then I don't go and I apologize, I don't say sorry to this person. To my friend. I'm going to be What? I'm going to be adding fuel to the fire. Right. I'm going to make be making the situation much, much, much worse. Okay. You can use this expression anywhere on in any situation. Very good. How about idiom in expression number 14 Hit two birds with one stone. Okay, as you can see, here are in the picture. How many birds do I have to birds right now? If I want toe hit these two birds, How many stones should I have? At least two, right? At least two stones. Right. But if I managed to hit both birds with one stone, that means what that means. I'm saving an extra stone, right? So, in other words, I'm doing too good things at the same time. Like let's say, for example, I want to buy a mobile phone from this shop on. I want to buy a laptop from another shop where which is very, very far. Okay, so in other words, I have to do two things, but instead I go to 1/3 shop that sells the mobile. I want on the laptop. I want at the same time on they sell it at half price. Let me. I'm hitting two birds with one stone. Okay, because I've saved myself money. I've saved myself. Effort on dive saved myself time. Okay, So to hit two birds with one stone means to do many good things or two good things. Uh, from doing just one thing. Okay. Making a safe time and effort on money to hit two birds with one stone. Very good guys. For these were idioms and expressions. Number eight to number 14. Let's revise over them again. If I say it's better to be late, never. Or if if I say better late than never that means that means it's better to arrive late than never at all. Or is better to do something than to not do anything at all? Okay, If I say let's call it a day, then that means let's stop doing something and we can try again tomorrow. If I say pull somebody's leg. If I am pulling somebody's leg, that means I'm kidding or I'm joking. I'm not saying the truth, okay? If I am under the weather in that means I'm sick. I could be sneezing. I could be coughing. I could be tired. Okay. I could have high temperature. So that means I'm under the weather or I am sick. Ok, as for if I say something is only going to happen when pigs fly, that means something will never, ever happen. Because pigs don't have wings and takes can't fly if I am adding fuel to the fire, right. And that means I'm making the situation worse. Okay. Like not apologizing like joking with somebody's upset. I'm making the situation much worse. And if I had two birds with one stone, then that means I'm doing two or many good things at the same time. Okay, so I'm saving money. I'm saving effort. I'm saving time. Very good guys. Now it's your turn here. We have some questions you can think about them and you can find them also in the project section in the document called idioms 8 to 14. You can think about these questions and try and solve them. So number one. When did you decide to call it? A day when you were doing something. Number two. What is a situation that you would describe as hitting two birds with one stone? Number three. What was the last time you felt under the weather on number four? What is something that will happen only when pigs fly? Okay, so that's it. Guys, I hope you enjoy this lesson in the next lesson. We're going to be taking idioms from 15 to 21. Okay, so thank you. 4. 15-21 Idioms and Expressions: All right, so welcome back, everyone to idioms and expressions in this class, we're going to be taking idioms and expressions from number 15 the number 21 again using pictures on examples. An explanation. So let's start straight away. Number 15. You can see that again. Now. This is a very common expression, Andi. We say it all the time and weaken. Say it in many different occasions or situations. For example, what can you see in this picture? It looks like a handwrite. A man has his hand out and he's giving a thumbs up, refined. Give somebody a thumbs up. What does that mean? Means I like what he's saying, right? Or I agree with what is saying or what he's saying is right. Okay. So if what he's saying is right, that means he can say it again, right? Because he's not lying. So it's the truth. Okay, so if I say to someone, you can say that again, it basically means what you're saying is right. It's not wrong. What you're seeing is right. Okay. Very good. How about number 16? Your guess is as good as mine. As you can see here on the picture. There's ah, on emoji off a man, Andi. He has his hands in the air on What does this mean? He means that he doesn't know, right? He's trying to guess what? He doesn't know something. Okay, So if somebody asks me, what are you going to do today? And I say to him, Your guess is as good as mine. That means you because you're asking. That means you don't know. Okay, But me, I'm telling you, I still don't know Also. So both of us, we don't know Your guess is as good as mine. Meaning? I don't know. Okay, so this is a common expression that you can use in different situations to mean that you don't know something or you don't know the answer or you don't know anything. Very good. Habit number 17. A penny for your thoughts. What can you see here in the picture, we can see a man is sitting down on. He looks as if he is very, very, very deep in thought. He's thinking about something. OK, now imagine you're you're this person's friend. You see this? Your friend? You see your friend sitting and thinking about something and is very deep in thought. What would you want to say? Of course You're gonna go to him and say, What are you thinking about? Right? Because you want to know. But instead of saying, What are you thinking about? You can ask, or you can say a penny for your thoughts. That means what means is, if you're you could pay. You could be a penny just to know what is What is he thinking about? Okay, so I penny for your thoughts means What are you thinking about? Okay, let me know what your steak came after. Very good. Number 18. Actions speak louder than words. Now, this is a very, very common idiom and expression. Onda. We can use it in many, many different situations again. As you can see it in the picture, it says what? Don't just tell me. Show me what does that means? A person could be a person could be very, very, very, very spoken about something. Okay, but when he comes to do something, he does the complete opposite. Okay, So what's really, really important here? What I say or what I do my words on my actions my actions of course are much more important . Okay, I could tell my son. Don't lie, don't lie, Don't lie. Lying is bad. Lying is bad. And then I go on lie. Okay, So that means what What I'm saying is opposite from what I'm doing. So that's why it's wrong. So my actions are much more important and they speak louder. Ok Means they have a more important and have more influence than my words. So actions speak louder than words. Very good. How about number 19? The ball is in your court. As you can see here in the picture, we have ah, football right on its on the playground of the pitch. Now how many teams usually play football to right now? What happens if one team scores a goal? What happened straight away? Do they get the ball and start, Or does the other team start the other team? Right? Starts, starts, starts the the game again night. That means the ball is in their court. Okay? It's fucking world. If I say the ball is in your court, it doesn't have to be about football. It just simply means that it is your turn. What? It is your decision or it's your action or it's your choice. Okay means I don't have to do anything. No, it's up to you now. Okay? If I say the ball is in your court, that means it's your decision. If I tell you where do you want to go to the want to goto pizza? Would you want to go and eat? Ah, hamburger. And then I tell you, the ball is in your court. That means you can choose whatever you want. Okay, you can decide you can choose. It's your turn toe to decide this time. So the ball is in your court means it's up to you. It's your decision. It's a very good expression, very good barking up the wrong tree, as you can see here. A so you can see him in the picture. We have two trees right on. There's a dog to the right, and there's a cat on the top left branch with a lot top left. Three. So what's the dog doing here? The dog is actually parking me, meaning he's doing how, how, How? Like this? He's barking, right? What is he barking? Where is the cat? Is he barking at the cat or is working at the wrong tree. He's barking at the wrong tree. In other words, he's doing something wrong. He's searching in the wrong place. Okay, You know, this expression again could be used in any situation. If I want to find my mobile, I can't find my mobile. Okay? And I'm searching. I'm searching. I'm searching in one place. And then I realized, Oh, my God, I left it at work. OK, so that meant when I was searching for it in at my home, for example, death means I was barking up the wrong tree. I was searching in the wrong place. I was doing the wrong thing. So the bark up toe. So to bark up the wrong tree, that means you're doing something wrong or you're searching in a place that is wrong. Very good idiom and expression. Number 21. Curiosity killed the cat. Curiosity killed the cat. Now what can you see here in the picture? A question mark right now. What does a question? What I mean usually means that you want to know something, right? You want to get the answers. You want to understand what's going on. Okay, but sometimes wanting to know things can be dangerous or it can be harmful, right? This is called curiosity. When I want to know too much about other people, for example, I want to know too much about other things. This is called curiosity. Okay. To ask too many questions to want to know too many things that are not in my business. Right? So this is called curiosity. This curiosity could kill the cat right? In real life, because cats are very curious and they love to play around and check new things and and see new things. This could kill the cat. And also for me as an expression, curiosity or wanting to know many two things, this could be harmful to me. Okay? Or it could be dangerous. In other words, if I see curiosity killed, the cat means take care. Okay, Take care off. Don't get to know too much because it could be dangerous. Very good guys. That said, these were idioms and expressions from number 15 to number 21. Let's go over the meaning on revised them here number 15. If I If I say to somebody, you can say that again right remember the thumbs up. That means you are right. You are correct. What you just said was right. Very good about number 16. Your guess is as good as mine. That means I don't know both of us. We don't know, right? You're asking questions. That means you don't know on at the same time. Meat? I don't know. That's so. I don't know. Your guess is as good as mine. Number 17. A penny for your thoughts. If I say that, that means I'm asking somebody. What are you thinking about? Okay, I want to know what's going on. What are you thinking about? Number 18? Actions speak louder than words. As we said, what you do is more important than what you say. People will listen to what you do rather than what you say. Good number 19. The ball is in your court. Okay? That means it's your turn or it's your decision or it's your choice. And it could be in anything in the world that could be in playing a football game. It could be in playing sports. It could be in choosing a job. It could be in choosing where to wear clothes, anything very good number 20 to number 20 barking up the wrong tree. That means I'm doing something wrong. But I'm searching in the wrong place.

What is a situation in which you were barking up the wrong tree? So that's it, everyone. I hope you enjoy this lesson in the next lesson. We're going to be taking idioms from number 22 to number 28. Thank you. 5. 22-28 Idioms and Expressions: All right. So welcome back, everyone to idioms and expressions. In this class, we've been taking many idioms and expressions, and in this lesson particularly, we're going to take idiom on expression from number 20 to number 28. Okay, so let's start with number 22 on cloud nine. Okay? What can you see here in the picture? Obviously, there's a There's a man right on. He looks very, very, very happy, right? He's not on any cloud on There are no nine clouds or anything. OK, but is his as happy as if he was in the sky? Because if he was high, high, high up in the sky to be on cloud nine, that means you're very, very, extremely happy. You just heard good news or you're in a good mood or something good happened. So we're very happy throughout the day. Okay, so on cloud nine means to be a very happy very good. How about this one? Number 23. Don't cry over spilled milk. Okay, Now cry means toe. Feel sad, right? And the tears flow out of your eyes. Andi, milk is something that we drink, right Comes from cows, for example, milk and spilt milk means the milk is on the floor or it's on the ground. Okay, Now, forget about the picture for for a moment. But let's say, for example, if I have milk okay, on the mix in a cup, I can drink it. Right. But how about if the milk falls on the ground or it spills on the floor? Can I drink this milk? No, I can't drink. Right. Okay. So I am I just going to stay upset forever. I feel upset now, right? Because I can't drink this milk. But if I am upset, is this going to help the situation? Is it going to help? The problem is, they're going to make me have this milk off course not. Okay. So in other words, if I say don't cry over spilt milk means there's nothing more you can do. Okay? It's something in the past, and it's not going to help if I'm always said about something in the past. Okay. What happened happened, Andi, there's nothing more we can do about it. Okay, So let's change our attitudes on. Let's try and do something about it, okay? But being sad, this won't help the situation. Okay, So don't cry over spilt milk means don't be sad over something that happened. Okay? There's nothing you can do about it. As you can see here, for example, in the picture we have, Ah, a mobile phone. Right? And it looks as if it's broken on. Obviously, the phone is very valuable. And it has a lot off information on it on a lot of people. Lot of contacts and everything's on this phone. Right? But it's broken. It's destroyed. Can I fix it? Maybe not. Sure, but there's a big chance that I can't fix this phone. Right. So there's nothing I can do about being sad and crying over something bad that happened will not help me at all. Okay, so just accept and live on on. We can get new four, for example, or get new milk or something or whatever. Okay, so don't cry over spilled milk. Very good expression. I was number 24. Speak off the devil. Okay, now, obviously, the devil is the very bad figures in many religious texts. Right? So the devil is someone very evil and very bad. OK, but what has this got to do with the pictures or with the expression now in the picture. What can I see? I see a man and he looks It looks very surprised, right? He looked shocked. Okay, so if I'm speaking off the devil Okay, let's say fine with my friend friend. A for example on, we're talking about friend, Be who's not with us, okay? We're not saying anything bad. Were just They were just We happen to talk about friend. Be so I'm with my friend friend A And then we talk about friend B and then suddenly this friend be appears. Okay, In this situation, we can we can say speak off the devil. In other words, we were just talking about you Whenever you talk about something. Sorry. Whenever you talk about someone on this person appears straightaway, you can say speak off the depth. Okay. Again. It's not a bad expression. And it doesn't have anything to do with the devil or evil is just a simple way of saying we were just talking about you. And suddenly now you're here. Ok, so that's why he was surprised. Very good. How about number 25? A taste of your own medicine? Of course, this picture was taken from Tom and Jerry. What is Tom trying to do? He's trying to light like a small bomb into the hole. Uh, where Jerry lives, Right, But at the same time, what is happening to him? Jerry, the back right is also lighting another bomb behind some, right? In other words, a taste of your own medicine. Now, medicine, of course, medicine tastes bad, right? Taste very bitter. Okay? And we don't have medicine, okay? But it just simply means this expression simply means whatever bad thing you did. Someone. Okay, we're going to get treated in the same way. So, just like Tom wanted to do something to Jerry, Jerry is treating Tom in the same way. Okay. A taste off Tom's own medicine. In other words, Jerry's treating Tom in the same way he treats other people. And obviously it's in a bad way because medicine tastes bad. Okay, So if I So if I say a taste of your own medicine, that means what I'm going to treat you, for example, in the same way you treated me. Okay. In a bad way, For example. Very good. How about number 26 raining cats and dogs. Now, obviously, we can see a picture on their cars and there's a bike and there's a guy riding the bike. But what's the weather like? It's raining, of course. What does The train trains? Water, right? So it's raining and it's a light rain. Or is it heavy rain? It's heavy. Re right. It's a lot of rain. Okay, so if I see raining cats and dogs, this is simply an expression that means it is raining heavily. It is raining a lot. There's a lot of rain. There's a lot of water coming down. It doesn't have anything to do with cats. Doesn't have anything to do with dogs. This is just an expression that we can see. So if its raining cats and dogs meaning it means it's training a lot, training heavily. Very good. How about number 27 on thin ice? Okay, now, as you can see here in the picture, we have what looks to be like a lake or or ice on the lake. But the lake is not water. It's it's the ice form. OK, now, imagine if a man was standing on this ice. What will happen to the ice to make this noise like like total crack, right? This is what it means to be on thin ice. Mean Means what? The ice is so thin that a person can easily fall into the water into the freezing water. Okay, this is how this is the picture. How about the expression itself? Similarly, in the expression itself, if somebody is doing something dangerous, something risky or something that is very problematic and it could have a lot of bad effects and he is this close is very close toe Get into trouble. I can say he's on thin ice. Means he is very, very close to, uh, getting into trouble. Okay, He's on thin ice. Like, for example, if I goto work late one time the boss made me he might not see anything if I If I go late the second time, he might be more upset if I go late for the third and fourth time. This is probably my last chance, right? I'm going to be on thin ice. That means it's my last chance. OK, It's a very risky, very dangerous situation because probably I will be fired afterwards. Very good on number 28. Expression or idiom is Get wind off something. No, as you can see it here in the picture, we have two people on. One of them is telling the other secret, right? So the one or the person on the right he got wind off. Something means he heard news for he heard a peep or he heard a piece of information. Okay. And it's usually something secret. Something that was kept secret or something. That was a rumor. Okay, so if I say I got wind off something that means I heard from somebody a certain a piece of information or I heard news, it might not be too OK, but it probably was something secret. Okay, But it's still something that I heard. And now I know about. It's why I got wind of something very good guys. So this waas the lesson on let's go over the meaning and revised them now. So if I say if if I say I'm on cloud nine, that means I'm very, very happy. If I tell somebody, don't cry over spilled milk. That means being sad over something you can't change is pointless. There's nothing to do about it. Right form was broken, the medical spilled. OK, so we just have to accept. And there's nothing we can do about it. Being sad will not help number 24 if I say speak of the devil is usually expression. That said, when someone that we were talking about appears, he just appears. Okay, Number 25. A taste of your own medicine. This expression is usually said when someone gets treated in the same bad way he treated others right? Like when Jerry, for example, treated Tom the same way Tom wanted to treat Jerry. Okay, taste of your own medicine number 26. If I say it's raining cats and dogs, that means it's raining heavily. A lot of water, a lot of rain. If I say I'm on thin ice, that means I'm in a very risky for dangerous situation. That's probably my last last last chance on defy get wind of something that means I heard secret information or I heard news or I heard the rumors or I heard about something very good guy. So that set. Now it's your turn. You can think about these questions and you can solve the document in the project section off the class. Question number one. When was the last time it rained cats and dogs where you live? When was the last time it rained? Cats and dogs number to describe a situation in which you felt on cloud nine. Number three.

Welcome back, Everyone to idioms and expressions. This is a new lesson in our class on. We're going to be taking idioms and expressions from number 29 to number 35. Okay, so let's start with number 29. The apple of my eye idiom. An expression number 29 The apple off my I Okay, now, obviously we know what an apple is. Apple is a type of fruit that we eat, and the eye is the organ that we have in our face so we can see how many guys do we have? We have to, Right? But if I say to somebody, you are the apple of my eye. It doesn't mean that he's an apple or that he belongs in my eye or that she belongs in my eye. It simply means that I love this person, okay? And I love this person very much on I love this person the most. Okay, so if I tell someone you're the apple of my eye, that means I love her the most. Or she's my favorite person.

Okay, as you can see it in the picture, there's a man on. He looks in the future running. Okay. And of course, when you're running, you try to run very fast. So instead of saying run very fast, I can just simply say run like the wind. Okay? Because the wind goes very fast. Okay, So run like the wind means to run very fast. Could be for a sports event. It could be to catch a bus to catch a train. The war. Very good. How about 31? That ship has sailed. Okay. What can you see here in the picture? In the picture, we see that looks like a boat or a ship on. It's just at the dock. Right? That What does that mean? Means it still has not started to move. Right. Andi, there's a rope that connects it to the dock. Okay. So that it doesn't move. So imagine this is the ship that I want to get on and it's still connected, right? That means there's still a chance for me to get onto the ship. Right? Very good bye. Imagine if this if this ship was out in the sea. It's very far from the dock and I'm on the dock or I'm on the land. Can I swim to this ship? Can I get on the ship easily? Of course not. Right. So if I say the ship has sailed or that ship has seemed means it's too late. I can do anything anymore. That ship has sailed. Could be for anything in the world. It doesn't have to be about getting onto a ship. It could be about anything in the world. Like if I go and I say to a woman, for example, I still love you and she tells me I'm sorry. That ship has sailed. What does that mean? It means it's too late. Okay. She no longer she no longer feels the same way about me, for example. Okay, so that ship has sailed. Means it's too late. There's no chances anymore. It's a very good expression. Very good. How about number 32 through thick and thin, as you can see here in the picture, we have a group off Children on day four Children they look very happy. They're having fun there together, right? They're very happy. Okay, Now, through thick and thin basically means that people are together or were together in the good times and in the bad times. Okay, Like these kids, for example, they look as if they're having fun, So they're happy. So it's a good time. So they were with They were they were with each other or the West together. Okay. And probably also and probably also maybe they were together also in bad times together, okay. Or in hard times. So if I see he was with me through thick and thin or she was with me through thick and thin . That means we were together in good times as well as bad times. Very good. How about number 33?

Like for example, I couldn't find a job and I applied at many different places and nobody phoned me. Okay? And then suddenly I wake up one day on all of the job cos air forming me on all of the job companies want to hire me. So it supporting it, supporting a lot of jobs. Right? So when it rains, it pours.

If a person is yawning, what does that mean? That means that the person is very tired, right? That the person wants to sleep that the person wants to go to bed, okay? Or that the person is a bit lazy. Okay, so it has nothing to do with a couch. It has nothing to do with the potato. Okay, this is just an expression. If I see this person is a couch potato, that means he She is very, very lazy. Okay, imagine a big potato sitting on a couch. He's like what she's like. Okay, so it's a big couch. Potato means a very lazy person. Very good guys. How about this one? Number 35 on the fence. Okay. What can you see here in the picture? Obviously, we see a black fence right on. There are two sides. There's a site in front of defense. Andi, there's the side behind defense. Okay, so there's inside and outside, or there's right and there's left. OK, now, imagine if a person were sitting on the fence sitting. Okay? He's on the fence. So is he on the right? No. Is he on the left? No. Is he inside? No. Is he outside? No. So where is he? He's on the fence. So what does that mean? It means that he or she did not take his decision. Okay, Is he with us or against us? Is he inside? Is the outside we still don't know? So if a person is on the fence means a person is very unsure or this person is hesitant or this person is indecisive. Okay, look, if I say, Are you going to travel this summer when a person tells me I'm still on the fence, that means what he still is. Unsure. He's not sure if he's going to travel or he's not sure if he is not going to travel his own defense. He still didn't make up his mind. So that's it. Let's look at the meaning again and revised him. So if I say someone is the apple of my eye, this means that the person I'm talking to is the person that I love the most. If I tell someone run like the wind, I'm simply telling him, Run fast. If I say that ship has sailed, that means it's too late. Okay, if I say through thick and thin, that means me and a certain person we were together in all the good and bad situations. We work together. Good. If I say when it rains, it pours. That means too much of a good or bad thing happening at once. If I see a person is a couch potato, that means a person is very lazy. And if I say I'm still on the fence and that means what I'm hesitant or I'm unsure or I didn't make up my mind or I didn't decide yet, I'm still not sure. So that's it, guys, these are the questions.

We're going to be continuing with more idioms and expressions. Thank you. 7. 36-42 Idioms and Expressions: All right. Welcome back, Everyone to idioms and expressions. This is our new lesson in this class on going to be taking new idioms and expressions from number 36 the number 42. Okay, lets start straightaway with number 36. This is a more expression is a blessing in This guy's okay. What can you see here in the picture? We can see a man who is trying to dig more and more off the rocks. Okay, this looks as if it's something hard, something difficult. Okay, It's going to take him time. It's going to take him effort. Okay, so it's something hard or difficult, and maybe it's something bad, OK? But that the end is going to receive what? He's going to get the diamonds or the gold. Okay, so it's going to be a blessing at the end. What is a blessing in disguise mean means that a person passes through a difficult or hard or a bad situation that turns out to be a blessing at the end. It turns out to be something good. Okay. Like if somebody misses the plane, he doesn't get on a plane. And then something happens with the brain, for example. It crashes or something. So this is a blessing in disguise? Why? Because he thought it was bad because he missed his plane. But it turned out to be good for him at the end because he didn't crash and he didn't die, for example. Okay, so this is what it means. A blessing in disguise when you can use it in many different situations. Very good. How about number 37 off the hook? Okay. As you can see, I think it's very clear the boy what you're doing is doing shoe. If a person says few, what does that mean? Means he's happy, right? Is relieved. There was something bad that was going to happen. And then few, it turned out. No, it didn't. Okay, so that's why he became off the hook off the hook. Means what means he was in trouble. Okay, What a problem was going to happen and then didn't happen. Okay, so he was off the hook. Means he's no longer in trouble anymore. Okay? He's not going to be punished. Is not going to suffer anybody. Uh, the result. His off the hook means he's on the safe side now. No problems and no troubles whatsoever. Very good. Okay. Ask for 38. No pain, no gain.

Could be physical pain in my body. Could be mental pain in my mind. So it's a lot off pain. Okay? Gain means the good thing that I get in return. Okay, So if I say no pain, no gain means if you don't work hard, you know, going to get any good results. In other words, you have to work hard to get good results. Okay? This is a very good expression, and you can use okay. Instead of saying you need to work hard to somebody, you can just say no pain, no gain. It means what? You have to work hard and you will get great results. Just like this Man here is working hard and he's in pain. But at the end is going to gain What the The diamonds. Very good. How about number 39? Elephant in the room. Now this expression is a bit different from what the pictures shows, but in the picture, what can I see? I can see something that's very, very clear, very big, and it's right there in my eyes. What is it? That's the elephant right now. Elephant obviously is very big. The elephant elephant is huge. Okay? Elephant is clear and loud and you can see an elephant. Whatever you go, right. It's very clear to see What does this mean? This doesn't mean if I say if I say there's an elephant in the room, that doesn't mean that they are that I have an elephant is there in front of me. It simply means that there's a very clear and embarrassing situation or topic that we must talk about. What does that example I'm sitting with? My friends were sitting at home Andi last night. Huge problem happened. Okay, A huge problem. Whatever this problem, it is okay. And then suddenly we all meet up again today into the room. There's an elephant in the room. Means what? Because we have to talk about this situation. It's an embarrassing, and it's a very clear and obvious situation. that we have to discuss what happened yesterday, for example. Okay, so we can call this the elephant in the room because it's something big. It's something important. It's something in Madison and it's something huge. Okay, it is something. Cleave. So we have to discuss something. Call it the elephant in the room. It's not a real elephant is just an important thing We need to talk about. Very good. How about number 40? Giving someone somebody the cold shoulder? As you can see, the picture is very clear. There's a man and he looks as if he's not interested. And he's even raising his shoulders. OK, to let's say someone else, for example, was not in the picture. So do you think this person is interested? No. Right? So if I give someone the cold shoulder, that means I'm ignoring somebody as if I'm raising my shoulder in his face. I don't want to talk to this person. Okay? I'm not interested. I don't want to talk to him. I'm ignoring this person. Okay? To ignore means do not talk to somebody. Very good. How about number 41 stealing someone's thunder? Okay. How many people are? How many runners. Can I see in this picture? I see, too, right? These are two famous runners. The one on the left is Usain Bolt was very, very, very fast and very famous. What's he doing to the other guy? He's very happy, happy in his face, right? So it's almost as if he's He's the only one who is happy and he doesn't want the others to be happy, right? So that's why Usain Bolt, the runner who's on the left, is stealing someone's thunder. He's stealing the other guys happiness, okay, It's not a real sort of thunder, and it's not a real stealing, however, is just He's happy and he doesn't want the other person, for example, to be happy. Okay, so he's stealing his happiness. This is an expression, and it's very common, and it's very useful to steal somebody. Standard means I'm stealing somebody's happiness or I want to be happy and make the others also not feel happy. Okay, it's nothing wrong in it, but it's, you know, sometimes happens in life. Okay? Sometimes people can want themselves to be happy, and and this can make others feel upset. Very good. How about number 42 beat around the bush. Now I can see two lines in the spectrum, right? The one on the left is direct. It's from one place to the other. Directly clear on. Simple right. As for the one on the right is going in his exact right and left trying out right and left . So it's almost as if the line is going to many places to reach what it wants right now. What's this? What are these lines got to do with the expression? Okay. To beat around the bush, that means to be in direct to be like the line on the right. For example, if I want toe, um, I won't ask my wife to do something, okay? And then instead of asking her directly ice, I start to say hi. I start to say I start to talk about other different situations, start to change the subject. And then at the end, I asked her for what I want. This is unclear, right? I'm beating around the bush means I'm doing many different things to get what I want at the end. Okay, because I should be clear and direct, like the line on the left. Okay, so to beat around the bush means to be in direct, unclear, say or talk about different things before I reach my point. Okay. This is to beat around the bush. Many people are like this. Many people like to change the subject. Sometimes Maybe they can feel embarrassed. Sometimes they can feel nervous. So that's why they love to beat around the bush. Okay, very good. So that's it, guys, this is the revision off the idioms and expressions that we took in this class. If I say something is a blessing in disguise, that means it's a good thing that came after a bad situation. Okay, Like if I missed the plane and then something bad happened to this plane, so it's a blessing in disguise. Good. If I'm off the hook, that means that I no longer have any problems. I am. Let's go without any problems. I'm no longer in trouble. I'm on the safe side. I'm off the hook. Very good. If I say to somebody, no pain, no gain. That simply means that I'm telling this person that you have to work hard to get good results. Whatever the results. Maybe, but you have to work very part about elephant in the room. If there's an elephant in the room that, then it means there's a very embarrassing or like or a clear or an important situation that we have to talk about. Okay, it's almost as if it's as clear as an elephant, but something huge that we have to talk about so it is very clear on is very embarrassing. Good. How about number 40? If I give someone the cold shoulder? That means I am ignoring this person. I'm ignoring him. I'm not talking to this person. I'm not listening to him. Good. If I'm stealing someone's thunder, that means I'm taking a person. Is happiness a wave? Okay, I'm being extra happy on a day that he should be happy on, for example. Okay, So I'm I'm stealing his happiness away. Very good. And then the last one to beat around the bush, as we said to be very indirect. You're not saying what you really want to see you change the subject. You mentioned other things. You could be nervous. You could be embarrassed through your beating around the bush. Very good guy. So that's it? These where the idioms and expressions and now it's your turn. You can think about these questions and you can answer them. Number one. Describe a situation that turned out to be a blessing in disguise. A bad situation that turn out to be good. Number two, who is a personal, always beats around. The Bush person was very indirect. It doesn't get to the point. Number three. Has anyone ever stolen your thunder? What was the situation and what happened? Number four. Who did you give the cold shoulder to and why? What happened? Why did you give this person the cold shoulder? Okay, so that's it. Guys, I hope you enjoy this lesson. And in the next lesson, we're going to be taking more idioms on expressions.
