Muito obrigada por esse vídeo... Muito útil pra mim... Além de aprender "IDIOMS", eu presto atenção na maneira como você fala, na pronúncia de cada palavra, enfim em cada detalhe, porque me ajuda melhorar meu inglês...paro e volto o vídeo várias vezes, para perceber a pronúncia... Isso é muito legal, numa sala de aula, não ousaria interromper a aula toda hora... Agradeço muitooooooo sua lição! Adorei!!! São Paulo - Brasil

Thank you so much for your videos. I'm gonna make some sentences with the idioms I learned from the video to practice. English idioms POCEnglish A blessing in disguise. It took me a lot of time to get my first job here but it was a blessing in disguise. While I was preparing for interview skills, I could develop my English to the next level. If I didn't have the time, I would've had many troubles at work. A dime a dozen I heard that Koreans are a dime a dozen in the city, but it is not. It's hard to find Koreans out there in the city. Actions speak louder than words. Although I know actions speak louder than words, I find it is really hard to take an action. It needs more courage than words. All ears When I talk to someone, I keep trying to give them impression I'm all ears for them. Beat around the bush. I always beat around the bush. I'm afraid of what I'm saying hurts somebody. Bite the bullet I think my English reaches the level for job interviews within one and half months. But I'm running out of my budget. I have to bite the bullet. Break a leg You're gonna be fine. You worked really hard on it. That will pay off. Break a leg! Cost an arm and a leg The currency of Euro has been rising up continuously. Everything costs an arm and a left here. Cut the chase There must be some reasons you came to me now. cut the chase, what's up? Easy as pie Learning English with POC English is easy as pie Every cloud has a silver lining. I'm still scared of every challenge here, I want to make a step, but I'm afraid of what's gonna happen afterwards. However, I know every cloud has a silver lining. I don't need to be afraid of new challenges. Go the extra mile If you really want to do something, always go the extra mile. Hit the nail on the head Yesterday, I used an idiom in a conversation. I hit the nail on the head. In a nutshell In a nutshell, you need to go abroad and get some experience there. It's raining the cats and the dogs I'm soaked. It's raining the cats and the dogs. Let the cat out of the bag If you're not ready, don't let the cat out of the bag. That's gonna be a problem. Once in a blue moon I love Korean food. Since going out to eat at a restaurant costs an arm and a leg. I go to a Korean restaurant once in a blue moon. Put all your eggs in one basket. I used to put all my eggs in one basket. I have realized that I shouldn't do that anymore but this challenge is my last what I do it once more. Rome wasn't built in a day. I know Rome wasn't built in a day, whenever I hear someone's success, I'm upset. See eye to eye At first, they were struggling to make some point meets for both. They finally saw eye to eye Spill the beans. I just told you about it a few minutes ago and you just spilled the beans?! take a rain check I'm sorry, I got something to do at work. I don't think I can make it this weekend. Can I take a rain check? The ball is in your court I gave you everything to live here that you need. Now, the ball is in your court. The early bird catches the worm I'll try to go to bed early from now on. I'm gonna show you the early bird catches the worm. The elephant in the room You don't need to spend time with me if you don't want. I know I'm the elephant in the room The whole nine yards. I'd like being alone at home. I'd like to read, watch TV shows, play the computer game, home training, the whole nine yards. Through thick and thin It's just a phrase. You need to go through thick and thin with your partner. Throw in the towel I tried to learn both languages together, but it takes more time to study. Since I don't have much time to start to look for a job, I threw in the towel for German. But just for now. You can't judge a book by its cover Tom is a really good friend. Kind and thoughtful. He always supports me. You can't judge a book by its cover. Once you get to know him, you're gonna love him. You hit the jackpot Wow, you got this room only with 3 euros? You git the jackpot!
