fresh off the boator feel like a
fish out of waterin an English-speaking country, but watch this video, and
the world will be your oyster. You won’t
clam upwhen you have to speak. You’ll stop being a
dead fishin bed. After you watch, take out your
trouser troutand do the quiz!
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.
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?
The quiz is here now, Regino!

where is quiz?
It was a little late, but it’s there now.
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?
It is often used sarcastically to mean a bad situation. Just like sometimes when something bad happens, people say
Yes!It’s a controversial one. Whom should we listen to, Ronnie?
Ok, I’ve got it. I didn’t notice the engVID’s comment^)
But is the sarcastic meaning really common?
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.
Your phrase about “shrimp”is very funny I like it.
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).
You really enjoy saying “pearl necklace” :-D
Wish you all the best.
I do love seafood. I loved the video, I like to create phrases by using all the new stuff I’m learning.

What the meaning of immigrate
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.”)
how i can turn the video with subtitle
can you teach me one to one?

Thanks Ronnie, is a great lesson for me!
Hi Ronnie, thanks. that was a funny lesson.
“a very difficult and annoying situation”
i look it up from Cambrige Dictionary Online. But you said “fine kettle of fish” = a very very good situation ?
very intresting and useful this lession, thank u ronnie
Ronnie, i have no idea how to Thank for your lessons. Each lesson that i watch i love more and more. Thanks a lot Ronnie, you are really amazing. *—-*
thanks a lot Ronnie.
Great move at 11:35 Ronnie!!!
good lesson. Thank you.
you are one of the best teacher that i have ever seen
i like u so muuuuuuuch
wow! your lesson is very good!!
I wanna good at english~ I WILL TRY~
Hi Ronnie, your lessons always surprise me! Thank you for your dedication.
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.
great lesson ,,,, thanks a lot
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?
hi ronnie igot a perfect score,yeheyyy.thank you
Great lesson Ronnie thank you
Hi. How are you these days? You are a great teacher and I always watch your videos. they help me a lot. thanks for helping me and the others…
Have a nice day. Bye…
Thank you very much.it was an incredible
Thanks Ronnie you’re the best¡
You are the best! You made my day :)!
Thank you so much…
i am happy as a clam to have listened to your video; thanks for it ronnie
very funny lesson, great Ronnie
What funny options the test have! Thank you.
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!
Again,thank you Ronnie, for more one cool and interesting lesson!!!
I always think that ‘fine kettle of fish’has the opposite meaning and it means a very bad situation. Strange enough
good lesson thank you
the best teacher ever Ronnie
I love how you teach take you
Everyone,The world is your oyster!
Thank you very much.
You got 9 correct out of 10
