EXPRESSIONS

Languages are full of idiomatic expressions or idioms. English speakers use idiomatic expressions in their everyday speech. Native speakers are usually not aware that they are using idioms but a non-native speaker will find idioms very illogical and difficult to learn.

Idiomatic expressions can be just one word or a group of words. If you try to understand an idiomatic expression literally, in most cases, it will make very little sense. The objective of an idiom is to try to develop a new meaning that goes beyond the literal significance.
