Idiomatic expressions are a type of informal English that have a meaning different from the meaning of the words in the

expression.Every language has idioms, and they can be difficult to learn if you are not a native speaker of that

language.
Since idioms are influenced by the culture, learning the idioms of a language can be very interesting and

enlightening!



Here are some Common idioms:


1.Rise and shine!

  • Wake up and be happy!
2.Wow! It's raining cats and dogs out there!
