Proper use of Idioms

Postby studyabroadlife » Tue Jun 12, 2018 4:20 pm

Idioms can convey that the current situation is described has a resemblance with past history, and in that sense, they may be similar to analogies or metaphors. Learning some key idioms and their usages can help your score in IELTS writing and speaking tasks. It is suggested you not use about 2 idioms in an essay with 250 words. However, this is a very difficult statement to make with authority, as some idioms are used so frequently that we do not recognize them as idioms.

Idioms play important role in the English language with which we can complete the sentence. So to make the sentence complete and meaningful we use idioms. These idioms are easily understood by the people who speak English fluently.

Idioms are used to make your conversation more impressive and effective. They are group of words which individually won't make any sense but when used in appropriate manner then they can take your statement to another level. :wink:
