Common English Idioms- Recap

In our previous common English idiom lessons, we cover the parts below. It is highly recommended to read our part 1 and 2 idioms before moving to part 3.


Overview of Idiom Part 3

In part 3 of our idioms, the idioms are organized by topic. It is impossible to speak or write about any subject without using idiomatic English. Here are some examples:


  • Family: Tom and Jennifer are like two peas in a pod.
  • Money: Go on! Splash out!
  • Memory: I’ve got a memory like a sieve.
  • Reading: This book is like wading through treacle!
  • Work: I’m afraid I’m tied up at the moment.
  • Speed: You’d better get your skates on.


This part will be particularly useful to you if you have to write an article or take a language certification exam like TOEFL and IELTS. If your essay is on the topic of holidays or work, study those lessons in detail. Here is the list of idioms of part 3.
