Love it, Thank you, Ronnie :)

    Idioms always make our talking more colorful and natural.

    They are useful tools that help us see to some good extent how the English language works.

    It was a concise and interesting video-lesson.
    Have a great week Ronnie!!!

    P.S. I wonder why you don’t like idioms Ronnie.

    Regino

      Hi again Ronnie; just to let you know that I searched for the quiz high and low, but to my dismay I couldn’t find it.

      Engaging lesson Ronnie !

      P.S. Don’t you use idioms when you talk? How come?

      Regino

        The quiz is here now, Regino!

GOOD LESSON

Sandeep

where is quiz?

slahser

    It was a little late, but it’s there now.

    engVid

Hi Ronnie, thanks for your always interesting lesson, but I have a question; you said this idiom ” fine kettle of fish’ means a good situation, however when I checked this idiom on this website http://dictionary.cambridge.org/ – I found it means a very difficult and annoying situation >> what do you think?

Hassan Kamal

    It is often used sarcastically to mean a bad situation. Just like sometimes when something bad happens, people say "Great."

    engVid

    Yes!It’s a controversial one. Whom should we listen to, Ronnie?

    liliumsapiens

      Ok, I’ve got it. I didn’t notice the engVID’s comment^)
      But is the sarcastic meaning really common?

      liliumsapiens

Thank you Ronnie! Come to think of shrimp, it reminds me the movie ‘Forest Gump.’ Run, Forest, run! This phrase is very impressive. Have you ever watched it? For some reason, I think probably you have.
I’m looking forward your next lesson. Can’t wait! Bye for now.

juneriver

    Your phrase about “shrimp”is very funny I like it.

    steven

Hello, Ronnie !
You’re fab, real actress !
It’s so nice to listen to you.
When you talk words seems to get
straight into my mind !
I’ll use some idioms (except sexy).
Vale !

Yurokan

You really enjoy saying “pearl necklace” :-D

Wish you all the best.

Hi Ronnie! I want to congratulate for what are you doing here, on engvid.com, along with other teachers. I watched all your videos and I learned a lot of things. I would like to ask if you could make a clip for relative pronouns and clauses (difference between defining, non-defining etc). I try to learn about them form a pretty good book actually, but nothing compares to your explanations :) Thank you for reading this and have a beautiful day!

Hi Ronnie
I need to ask you this question,I heard that it is very important to know a lot of “IDIOMS” to understand a native speaker or if you are going to live in a English speaking country otherwise you won’t understand them.Is it true?

maazman

What the meaning of immigrate

maazman

    It means “to move to another country”. Like “Many people immigrated to Canada hoping for better jobs.”

    (When you want to emphasize moving out of instead of moving to, it’s “emigrate”: “My dad emigrated from Thailand in 1970.”)

Hi Ronnie, your lessons always surprise me! Thank you for your dedication.

Lisafromitaly

Hi Ronnie!
Unlike you, I fond of seafood and fish! Thanks for this lesson :) It is the good opportunity for learning vocabulary and for acquaintance with interesting idioms which could use in speaking in the same time! Some of these idioms have been remembered easily. For example, about shrimps, ‘fresh off the boat’ and “fish out of water’ ))))) What a interesting, we have some version about fish but it is directly opposite – ‘as fish in the water’ that means feel myself comfortable, in familiar atmosphere.

Upichka

great lesson ,,,, thanks a lot

Musbah

Hey, Ronnie! You said you don’t know why people say they are happy as an oyster. I don’t know if it is the same in Canada, but here in Brazil this idiom is common too. And people say it ironically. Because oysters aren’t happy at all. The pearl is like a tumor, and it happens when a grain of sand get in the oyster. So, the life of an oyster is suffering. Sad, isn’t it?

very funny lesson, great Ronnie

corradocardano

What funny options the test have! Thank you.

jack0910

i disagree a mite with Ronnie on the meaning of “a fine kettle of fish” and “Flounder”
“A fine kettle of fish” means (strongly in my opinion) – a troublesome situation (not good situation); a vexing problem.
“Flounder” means (according to urban dictionary) -a shapeless woman who has neither breasts nor an ass. She is thinly shaped up and down much like the fish.
Hope it will help!

KevinKoch

Again,thank you Ronnie, for more one cool and interesting lesson!!!

harry

I always think that ‘fine kettle of fish’has the opposite meaning and it means a very bad situation. Strange enough
