  • Can someone give me an idiom or proverb which describe about "good matters we takes as lessons, the bad matters we make border"? Something like that. Thank you.

  • hi

  • Mustafa!

    It depends upon what level of English you are.  Means there is no limit if the level goes to advance.

  • We use idioms when we wish to express an important message in less no of words. Example `Those who stay in glass houses should not throw stones at others`. This statement has a great deeper meaning and it hits the listeners mind and passes all that speaker wants to pass on in shortest statement.

  • Adam has shared a very good thought..it connects our ambitions with related actions.

  • A Great Saying!

This means to enter into something or make a beginning. as we know in place of one's we use `my, his, her, their, our` etc. In place of `to` we use noun or pronoun as a subject of sentence. Example: I had a very good interview in the company yesterday and I am sure i have got my foot in the door now.  Any interview is a good opportunity for us to get our foot in the door.  By improving our English we can get ready to get our foot in the door.  enjoy ! sunil
