Itching for Idioms (Part II)

Make no bones about it, in this blog post we will deal with the second part of "Itching for Idioms".

So maybe it's no blessing in disguise, but it's still a chance for you to learn a little more about the way native speakers really speak.

However, if you're a little lost wondering what some of those things mean, we invite you to check out our previous post.

Now here are today's idioms:

1. A Dime A Dozen:
Anything that is common and easy to get.

2. Cut to the Chase:
Leave out all the unnecessary details and just get to the point.
3. Flash In The Pan:
Something that shows potential or looks promising in the beginning but fails to deliver anything in the end. 
4. Get Over It:
To move beyond something that is bothering you.
5. Good Samaritan:
Someone who helps others when they are in need, with no discussion for compensation, and no thought of a reward.

6. Hit The Books:
To study, especially for a test or exam.

7. Keep An Eye On Him:
You should carefully watch him.

8.Pedal to the metal:
To go full speed, especially while driving a vehicle.

9. Raining Cats and Dogs:
A very loud and noisy rain storm.


10. You Are What You Eat:
In order to stay healthy you must eat healthy foods.

As always, we hope you find these idioms useful and we encourage you to use them and to look for them in conversation, in movies or as we suggested last post on Google.

In the meantime, have fun and if you get hungry remember: You Are What You Eat!
