Common Idioms: Do You Know What They Mean?

Common Idioms

An idiom is a phrase that is commonly used among a population and has a non-literal meaning. (In fact, when taken literally, an idiom can make a sentence into utter nonsense.) Common English idioms can be downright confusing, especially if you're learning the language for the first time, or a very literal person. You've probably heard these common English idioms in everyday conversation, from "fish out of water" to "call it a day."
