In The Name of Almighty Allah
Hi every body
I hope my friends will be fine. My name is Javid. this is my first post.
Well I like English and I think you can learn English just when you are interested in it. If you want to learn English you should try hard, because I believe that a successful outcome is worth the effort.
Today I wanna start my work with some Idioms. And also I will bring a short story for each Idiom as an example.
Smell a Rat
(Feel that something is wrong)
How come the front door is open? Didn’t you close it before we went shopping?
I’m sure I did. I can’t understand it.
Frankly,I smell a rat.
Me,too. I’m convinced that something is definitely wrong here.
We’d better call the police.
Cat Got Your Tongue?
Come om,connie! Tell us what you think about our little ride down the rapids yesterday.
Wasn’t it exciting?
What’s the matter? Cat got your tongue?
If you must know, I’m keeping quiet because I was scared out of my wits!
Straight From the Horse’s Mouth
(from a reliable source)
How did you find out that Jill was engaged?
I got the information from a very reliable source.
You mean Jill told you so herself?
That’s right. I got it straight from the horse’s mouth!
