One of the most fascinating and fun things about the English language is learning and using idioms. An idiom is a way to express oneself with words where the actual meaning is inferred. Unlike a figure of speech, which is possible to understand even if you have never heard it before, an idiom is an expression that conveys something different from its literal meaning, and can’t be guessed from the definitions of its individual words. Idioms are delivered in phrases, which consist of verbs, adverbs, and prepositions.
