Share with us the idiom you learned today. Idioms are phrases whose real meaning is totally different from its literal sense. Idioms are a dime a dozen in native speakers' everyday conversations. You've got to know the sense of the whole phrase to understand what they mean. Even if you understand all the words in the phrase you might miss the meaning. It is a great matter for us learners.

Here is the platform for all of us to share the idioms we have learned and by the same occasion to learn others.

These are the rules : Write completely the idiom you'd like to share, give a clear and thorough explanation and then give two or three examples to illustrate it. You are welcome to give more examples.

It dawned on me that native speakers also never stop learning idioms. Have idioms misunderstanding ever rained on your parade in conversation? Take a shot and let's start.
