Are those used in the US?

Bye!
See you! :)

    Hi Renata — thanks for your kind words :-) As far as I know, the same idioms are used in the US, but it would be best for you to double-check that with an American speaker. All the best with your studies, and see you soon!

Hi teacher

Sunday, May 22nd 2016

Thank you Jill, your lesson is good.

Sunday, May 22nd 2016

Hi Gill,

Thank you so much for the lesson. Can we use the expression “His bark is worse then his bite” in all situations, I mean will it be offensive to the one who is mentioned in the sentence when we talk about him like that.

Sunday, May 22nd 2016

    Hi Ixora — thanks for your question. You’re right, the expression could cause offence if used in the wrong context/situation, so it has to be used with care. And it’s usually said about someone who isn’t there to hear it … ;-)

    Tuesday, May 31st 2016

      I got it. Thank you so much Gill.

      Wednesday, June 1st 2016
