What is an idiom? An idiom is a phrase where the words together have a meaning that is different from the dictionary definitions of the individual words.

Learning English idioms should be a part of any decent english online course. It's almost impossible to guess the meaning of an idiom, you have to learn it by heart like english grammar or english vocabulary.

very nice
I have a suggestion
every body make a sentence with each idiom and put a comment here. so each of us would know more examples
for example:
1-when I wanted to resign from our company I thought how would I have the best of both worlds?
2-to have the best of both worlds I try to schedule for my days.

Please take part and send your own sentences

Thank you
