I was feeling a bit under the weather today, then I came across this video. It made my day. The idioms hit the nail on the head with respect to the most common ones used and provide great learning, and the examples were entertaining too - killing two birds with one stone I’d say. And I still can’t wrap my head around how she managed to present 100 idioms so succinctly! In a nutshell, she hits the ball out of the park with this one!

Hi Lucy! Congratulations on this video, it is still one of my favourites 3 years later! I wonder if you could still answer some questions about it, even though it was posted so long ago. - Easy question first: Would "getting sth off my chest" be equivalent to 24. "getting sth out of my system"? - Now a harder one: How would "a blessing in disguise" be different from "every cloud has a silver lining"? Could they refer to the same situation, i.e. sth negative that ended up having a bright side? Huge thanks in advance! 🍉😇

Thank you for this lesson, Lucy. To be honest, I could manage only 15 idioms today and had to stop. It wasn't possible to get all of them in my head in only one lesson. In my opinion, it would be better to split this staff into 3 or 4 parts and instead to give more examples.

Very comprehensive lesson, thanks, I hardly knew half of them. It's funny to notice how some idioms are word for word the same in French, i.e : - To break the ice = Briser la glace - To put all the eggs in the same basket = Mettre tous ses œufs dans le même panier - It's not my cup of tea = Ce n'est pas ma tasse de thé Some are only slightly different, i.e : - It costs an arm and a leg = Ca coûte un bras (it costs an arm) - To jump on the bandwagon = Prendre le train en marche (to take the train on the move) Some have the same meaning with a different expression, i.e : - To beat around the bush = Touner autour du pot (turn around the pot) - To bite off more the you can chew = Avoir les yeux plus gros que le ventre (to have your eyes bigger than your belly) - To give someone a cold shoulder = Battre froid quelqu'un (beat someone cold) - It's not rocket science = Ce n'est pas sorcier (it's not a sorcer's matter) - To let the cat out of the bag = Vendre la mèche (to sell the wick) - Once in a blue moon = Tous les 36 du mois (every 36th of the month) Some don't have any direct equivalent, i.e : - Barking up the wrong tree - Get a taste of your own medicine

Well, I didn’t realize that I was such an idiomat prior to this lesson. I am native to Kentucky and all listed examples here seem quite familiar to me. There’s no way of me truly knowing what’s common for my regional speech versus what I have picked up from elsewhere but I when I actively utilize idiomatic phrasing in discourse it certainly seems that the point/points get across. I can say that in my American turf, this language is well understood. I feel a sudden concern of communicating in cliched nonsense though. I suppose it has it’s time and place, perhaps more-so in our local style of small-talk.

It was extremely hilarious that in Philippines, a popular celebrity once said on national TV "Don't judge my brother. He is not a book." She actually was thinking of the idiom "dont judge a book by it's cover" but somehow she couldn't remember it right. But because of that blunder, she became the talk of the town in a positive way. 😃

Dear Lucy , I loved this session but I had a few doubts with regard to 2 examples of the above mentioned idioms 1) bite the bullet In the example "I will bite the bullet and quit my job " Does bite the bullet mean 'force yourself into unpleasant situation 'and in this context does it mean to quit the job ? If this is the meaning then can we say the above example using 'and ' because it shows two things . But here the unpleasant situation is quitting the job. So then shouldn't the statement be "I will bite the bullet by quitting the job " Similarly in the case 2) to sit tight

I know that I am not good in English as a Filipino learner, but I hope this comment will be understood. In fact, I have been studying English for months at the public school as taking my educational course of being a teacher someday in the Philippines and focusing on American English. But when I saw your TRshow channel, it is quite interesting and comprehensible as well. It helps me so much and nurtures my knowledge so well even this is a British English. Somehow, I have really learned a lot about English and acquired more linguist context. I watch this video because I am a poor and not smart either. And so I have to be practical in learning the second language for free (my first language is Filipino or Tagalog). Idiomatic expressions might be ambiguous in actual communication that is why I am going to assimilate this information about Idioms. Thank you very much, Ma'am. Lucy. May God bless you always. I will look forward to your video and to watch again soon on TRshow channel. Homework: 1. I have been waiting to watch the movie, but I missed the boat because I lost my money at the store earlier. 2. My parents have always told me not to sleep at late night, but their heart were in the right place. 3. James had finished the project by cutting corners, but the teacher was not satisfied and was disappointed. 4. If you want to find a girlfriend, you do not have to worry about. The good things comes to those who wait. 5. I was carried away with the misfortune and emotional even so I pull myself together. I should always be positive.

In high school I joined a theatre club and the teacher told me that in theatre culture, it's considered a jinx to wish someone's luck before the show starts, hence the phrase "break a leg" is used instead.

There's a couple of idioms that express a totality of any item or experience that both come from the British during WWII. The first is "head, ass, and gas mask." An example is, "I was totally involved, head, ass, and gas mask." The second one derives from a bomber machine gunner that empties his string of bullets that is about 27 feet long, simply stated, 'the whole nine yards." The example is, "I used up the whole nine yards." Loove your stuff...Dr. Rick Olsen

"As cheap as chips" has an American equivalent as in "A dime a dozen", in case your students ever see or hear that one. The only difference is that it also means "commonly found". I know I haven't experienced every community in the UK, but I haven't heard many English people say some of these, especially "jump on the bandwagon". I honestly thought "neck of the woods" was an American only expression, until now. Lovely video! :)

I have an idiom which means same in my language , It's really astonishing to know that English too has such sorts of idioms 😮😮

Thanks for these idioms, Lucy! I have a question about the example at 5:44. I learnt in high school to use singular nouns for attributives, but you used "...this 100 idioms video". Could you please elaborate on this grammar a bit? Thanks in advance!

Learning very local idioms is really funny. We have lots of this examples in Brazil as well, the most famous I think is " He is a hard bread" (it means one is cheap / doesn't like to spend Money)

First time seeing your channel and immediately subscribed to it. So practical and useful. Is there a way I can have a copy of the idioms?
