Do you love or hate learning English idioms?
Definition: “An idiom is a figure of speech established by usage that has a meaning not necessarily deductible from those of the individual words.”
Why are English idioms so difficult to learn? Idioms can be described as figurative phrases that can’t typically be taken literally. I.e. Idioms are difficult to learn because their meaning can not be understood simply by reading and understanding the individual words they consist of.
For example, if you hear someone say, I’m over the moon, you wouldn’t necessarily know what they were talking about. This idiom has no relation to the moon, or anything else in space, but actually means that someone is extremely happy.
