      Hi Alex, let me share some thoughts on the way I look at idioms:

      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 weekend Alex!!!

      Regino

      i agree with you..Alex is a great teacher..=)
      Thank you Alex…

I got 6 correct out of 10. I was confused. But later I understood No. 8. BTW when my friends died I was down in the dumps. They passed away when they were twenties and thirties they were too young :( Anyway, thank you for your lesson, Alex. Helpful :)

Happy04

      No problem! I just remembered them a little and tried to make a sentence with “down in the dumps.” Thank you for your sympathy :)

Thanks, Alex. :)

byte

Thanks Alex always, Can I ask a question?
I thought ‘Down to the wire’ is an adverb but on the quiz it looks like an adjective.
My example sentence is that “I’ll do my best down to the wire.”
However, on the quiz I saw the sentence “It’s going to be down to the wire”
So, is my sentence wrong?

sarah2013

Hi Alex…
Do u mind if u prepare some lessons about passive verb in all different tenses and teach me how can use them in my speaking and writing? I always have a problem with them and I am using them in a wrong way.

Mary

Thank you.

Iamhere.

It was very useful! I got 10 :)
Thank you Alex!
But i have something not clear.
It’s about the sentences from the quiz no. 2 and 10.
“That’s $250 down the drain.”, “That’s three years of my life down the drain!”
From here, ‘down the drain’ is noun?
Or what part is it grammatically?

Heather K.

Dear Alex, In the famous Tina Turner’s song (I don’t remember the name)there is a line ” I am down but not out? Does it mean I am without support but with money or I am without support and money but it is not so bad that I am down in the dumps.

Saidmammadli

I’ve been down in the dumps in the last few days, because I was camera-caught making a right turn on red light without stopping first. I may get a $500 ticket. That’s $500 down the drain! I should have been more down-to-earth instead of daydreaming when the yellow light came down to the wire before changing to red. LOL. Thank you for your down-to-earth lesson.
