1. Introduction : I'm all ears, I'm all ears. Amalia's, you know, guys, Americans can be a really hard to understand. Sometimes they talk very fast. They use a lot of slangs. They smile several wars together making a words. They only pronounce parts of many words we use. So guys, if you are learning English language, you definitely need to know a lot of English idioms. As you know, we use English idioms in conversations, in business, in exams, essays, in books, in movies, in music, and in every other situation where English language is used. And after taking this course, you will understand 200 of the most common slang and idioms of spoken American English. My dear friends, the method we used in this course can help you to understand and keep these ATMs in mind for a very long time. This course includes 20 comprehensive units, and each unit consists of six stages. In every single stage, you will improve a particular skill. Following these stages will 100% guarantee your success. You'll get the chance to improve your speaking, listening and review these phrases and expressions in different movie scenes. Your wish is my command. Your wish is my command. Here, wish is my command. Your wish is not coming. You wish is my command. Imagine you are watching a movie and then you will face these phrase. You shoot yourself in the vote, giving GAAP so many extra opportunities. Then we would fix a problem understanding this part. Or you are in the middle of the conversation with your friends. And then one of your English friends says, I'm going to tie the node's next month, but we have no idea what that means. Or you are taking an ILD or TOEFL exam and then you would face the symptoms. Racism was not a factor in the case. That was a red herring, THE round in by the defense lawyers. But maybe you would get confused and might not understand. Or red herring. Idioms are important parts of English learning and they really are thick on the ground. You see, you didn't maybe understand me here. Thick on the ground. These an EDM, which means the existing in large numbers. We use ATMs all of the time. On the radio, on the TB, in the news, in magazines, at social gatherings, or when we are just making small talk with a colleague at work. At the end of this course, you will be able to communicate more effectively and get more confidence. 2. Unit 1 : Study New Idioms: The expressions we will learn in this section are, shoot yourself in the phot. My lips are sealed. Hit the nail on the head. Titan one's belt and frog in the throat. Okay, My dear friends, let's start with ADM number one, should oneself in the fault. So just think about it. What happens if you shoot yourself in the phot? That's right.

Or we can say to damage one's plan or progress through a foolish actions or words. Okay, My dear friends, let me give you more examples so you can understand it better. Okay, My dear friends listen to these examples. I think you might be shooting yourself in the phot if you don't take his offer. This is a great upper extremity. So if you actually shoot yourself in the phot, you harm yourself in some way by doing something stupid or making a silly mistake. My brother has shot himself in the fold twice by turning down buyers for his house. Why does carry always shoot herself in the photo by saying the wrong thing? So she damages their own plans and hair own progress through foolish actions or words. Expression number 2, my lips are sealed. My lips are sealed.

Moms the word yes, moms the word which means keep this secret and do not share it with anybody. So my lips are sealed. It's an informal way to tell people that your promise to keep this secret. Don't worry, Ted. I'm not going to tell the teacher you cheated. My lips are sealed. Which means that actually I will tell no on this secret or this gossip. All please don't tell him you saw me here.
