DEF Idioms

Happy Friday nurses!

If you love idioms and want a way to learn more quickly, here are some ideas. On my last post I chose body parts with ABC. Here are 3 body parts with EF that are used in the following 6 idioms. It’s a good way to learn new language quickly.

Eye
A blue-eyed boy is the favouite in any group or the pet of a group
To have an eye-opener is to have an enlightening experience
To have half and eye on something: to not give something your full attention

Face
To face the music is to face criticism/punishment as a result of one’s own actions
To have a face as long as a fiddle is to look depressed
To stare one in the face is something that is obvious and clear to see

Try putting any of the above in a sentence that is meaningful to you to help you remember any one you like the look of. Always put a new word in a personal mental sentence to help you remember it. And, remember that if you don’t use it, you lose it so start weaving some idioms into your language today.

Until next week,
Marie
