5 Forgotten funny idioms in English - Free Spoken English Lessons

Blog : http://www.learnex.in/5-forgotten-funny-idioms-in-english

In this spoken English lesson, you’re going to learn some funny idioms that are almost forgotten. They sound funny to but would add a style to your English speaking.

1. When pigs fly: This is a very common idiom used, especially in English soaps. Pigs can’t fly in real. It will never happen. This idiom is used when you want to say ‘something will never happen’.

2. Cats got your tongue: This idiom is used for someone who is oddly suspicious and keeps silent. If somebody is silent and does not answer your question, it means cats got his tongue.

3. Bob’s your uncle: This idiom means that everything is alright or there you go. It is commonly used in Britain. So if you want to say ‘there you go’ or ‘finally your project is ready’ you can use the idiom ‘Bob is your uncle’.

4. Van Gogh: Now, Van Gogh was a deaf artist. So if someone uses this idiom for you, do not get happy. They are actually being very sarcastic. SO, if someone tells you, “You’ve got Van Gogh’s ear for music”, do not take it as a compliment. They mean that you have a poor taste for music.


5. Pardon my French: When you use swear words and make an apology, this idiom is an informal way of doing so. So when you listen to dialogues in English, you hear a ‘beep’ sound that indicates that it is a swear word. So you can always follow a swear word by saying ‘Please pardon my French.”
