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-she called me and said she had an accident, so I want there in short other.
2-to react in short order shows your ability when you hear the sound

Please take part and send your own sentences

Thank you

It's useful and another very important thing I'd like to say that your choice of idioms are very good to use in Indian context. Actually masters always refuse to use many idioms while speaking(unless you are speaking to a native speaker), as because idioms are not easily comprehensible. But your selections are handy and can be understood by any layman.It's impressive & praise worthy. Thank you with all the sincerity.

It's very educative. I have seen a few Burmese names in the list of those who have responded. Would like to contact them as I want to know Burmese equivalent of some English words, like English word for Dein Nyin Dee and English equivalent of "Nga Myin" etc. My Burmese name is Kyaw Tint and I am a 1964 graduate from Rangoon University. My Email is "rameshpahwa@rediffmail.com". Would be grateful if some Myanmarese contacts me. Thanks. (Ramesh @ Kyaw Tint)
