have your hands too fullto view this lesson!
Amazing, finally I`m learnig English language.
Hi Rebecca, how’ve you been? It’s great to hear from you again.
Just a couple of questions about this lesson:
Do the expressions “I have a sweet tooth” and “I am a sweet tooth” have the same meaning? If not what is the meaning of the second one?
Engaging lesson on Idioms Rebecca.
Thanks for sharing this superb lesson with us.
As far as I know, the second one is not used. It may be an incorrect version of the first expression. So, I would just stick to the first one – “to have a sweet tooth.” All the best, Regino.
Thanks so much. I’m so happy to hear that, Helman. All the best!
This is an amazing video, Rebeca. Very useful. :)
I think you have a heart of gold, Rebecca. Thank you :)
You have a good head on your shoulders, Rebecca!
Thanks a lot
Thank you Rebecca. A very good lesson
Hello let’s practice English through Skype
Happy04 – You’re right when you say Rebecca has a heart of gold, but I think she has a good head on her shoulders too :)
You have got your hands full
Well , the engvid’s teachers have the hearts of golds
Great lesson! Thank you, Rebecca!
thank you very much teacher Rebecca for great lesson like this
Thanks teacher!!I think you have a very good head on your shoulders jejeje With this kind of idioms we can “pretend” we know English!! Thanks again.
Great lesson… i love it…
Thanks a lot for your hard work :) I am just curious if you could give us a wonderful lesson on the following topic: using Whatever, Whenever, Wherever etc…They are still not covered on Engvid, so you could be a pioneer in this field! Don’t miss this opportunity!
Thanks again and see you again soon!
You are right Alex I think it would be good lesson !!!
Thanks for the suggestion, Alex. I will share it with the engvid team. All the best to you.
I think I have a good head on my shoulders but I always have my head on the clouds that why I can’t learn English well)
funny. so nice to meet you !!! vietnamese
can i get in on this?
Hi) Do you have a fb) we can keep in touch
Thank you, Rebecca!
That was really a good lesson
Hello Rebecca, thanks for your lessons, they’re always very helpful.
Just a question about this last one, if I wanted to say for example that someone is not paying attention to something at a specific time, does it work using to have the head in the clouds, or do I use it only when the person is often distracted?
Once more, thanks for the help!
Well, it depends.
If you say: “He always has his head in the clouds.” Then, you’re speaking about the person being that way in general.
If you just say: “He has his head in the clouds.” OR “He has his head in the clouds today.” , then it is understood that you are referring to a more temprary state or behavior.
Good question! All the best.
Sorry, I wanted to write: temporary!
thanks rebeca :-)
thank you so much Rebecca.They are very useful
Thank very much Rebecca! You have a heart of gold :)
Thank you Rebecca for your lesson :) It’s very useful!!

Thank very much. It was great. This is fantastic for my because, I learned more in this place.
I am going to study very hard. I need to learn English for help other people.
That sounds like a great reason to improve your English. My best to you.
As Happy04 and przemor already said, I also think you have a good head on your shoulders and a heart of gold!
Tanks a lot Rebecca you have a heart of gold .
Thanks a lot Rebecca you have a heart of gold .
I was hoping you could help me with pronouncing people names. I have a new job as a courtroom deputy and I am having a hard time with saying the names in the courtroom. Example: Thambrahalli. Thanks so much.
Well, names, especially unusual ones, can be pronounced in a variety of ways, so we can’t always know for sure. If you are familiar with the culture and the native language, you may have more luck in pronouncing the name correctly the first time! Otherwise, you can try your best to pronounce it in the way that seems best and then if you are wrong, the person will correct you. You could try to divide up a long name into syllables to make your job a little easier. I wish you all the best!
Thank you Rebecca you are so good teacher
Thanks, Raymond, for your kind words. This lesson of mine will help you:
All the best!
Thank you, Rebecca

hope you are doing well madame
i wanna know that what is the best way of memorizing new words at mind you well i know several words but i just cant even use them while speaking i just use some basic words so i get upsade i say to myself i know plethora of better words why can not use them?
and could you please do me a favore and list me some of thing i should care about at TTC classes what are TTC methods there at Canada?
i would be glad if you could list thewm for me i need them eargently. if there is any related book on that case please tell me.
thank you thank you so so much
i will be whatting for your replay
thanks in advance
I understand. There are many memory principles to help you learn vocabulary more effectively, which you may find online. One of them is that you need to review the new vocabulary often when you first learn it, and then less often later. If you learn a new word, and then don’t use it for another week, it will be difficult or impossible to remember it. You need to interact in different ways with the new words – say them aloud, write practice sentences, make index cards and review them regularly, put up the words on your fridge, etc so your mind gets many opportunities to play with the words and transfer them from your short-term memory to your long-term memory. You could also study with a partner and teach each other the words or use them in practice conversations, since you are both trying to learn the same vocabulary. Only practice makes permanent. If the words are more advanced, abstract or technical you have to create the situations or games to help you review. Your writing to ask me this question tells me you care enough to find the ways that work for you. I’m sure you will succeed. My best to you.
i have a problem like you
i think we can help each other especially by chatting in English , Of course if you like.
we can chat in every subject and ask our question from Rebecca.if you are agree,please send me your Email . and my Emails are firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you Rebecca!!!

just a quick question, are these idioms can be used in negative or positive cases for example, have head in cloud,can we use them in formal writing skills too?
Yes, you could make the idioms negative. In general, idioms are not used as often in formal writing. My best to you.
thank you so much Rebecca for your teaching English, i am so glad to learn here (EnVid) thank you again and again rebecca

He has a green thumb?! That one I never hearded before! And about someone who have is head on his shoulders, I thought that case, the meaning was, that he is very responsible, or reliable, not intelligent or smart. Thank you, Rebbeca.
Yes, a good head on your shoulders can also mean that someone is responsible, along with the meaning of being smart, wise, or intelligent. All the best, Jorge.
…. heard before …

TᕼᗩᑎK YOᑌ ᔕO ᗰᑌᑕᕼ ᖇEᗷᗷᗩᑕE I GOT ᗩ 80 %
awesome.. perfect score, thanks Rebecca for thoses idioms, u have a heart of gold :)
Thanks to all for your smart feedback and the kind and wonderful way in which you complimented me using the new idioms! That’s the best way to learn – by actually using the new expressions. Think of people you know for each of the idioms and say or write the sentences. For example:
My mother has a heart of gold.
My colleague has a good head n his shoulders.
When we personalize the examples, we give the idioms more emotional meaning and also a visual picture since we know what those people look like. Emotion and visual information help us remember more easily and effectively. Try it! My best wishes to everyone.
*those.. correction by the way :)
10/10. Useful idioms, Rebecca, thanks.
It,s very useful to talk in daily life.
10/10 Thank you so much.
very good lesson. explanation is excellent.
Beautiful technique. Learning cool new stuffs. thanks rebeca.
Thank you Rebecca for the lesson.As you said at the beginning of the lesson idioms are the part of the language and it tells much about nation culture and it is very interesting to know idioms.I rarely write comments ,but it also helps to improve the language .I like gardening, but I think my thumb isn’t green yet. All the best to you.
Yes, you are right, you need to use English in every way you can to practice and improve. Thanks for your feedback and all the best to you.
Very good lesson Rebecca. And about the quiz, I am in disagree that “a good head on his shoulders” means that a person is sensible. Instead, I think could be a Smart person. Sensible seems a person with “golden heart”
Actually, the word “sensible” has to do with the mind rather than the heart. You are right that having a good head on your shoulders includes being sensible AND smart. Thanks and all the best to you.

Thanks for your lesson teacher Rebecca! Idioms in English it is very interesting theme. Most of idioms in this lesson are identical to Russian. But there is no idioms like “… has a green thumb” in Russian. I learn only English, but it is interesting to know – are the similar idioms in other languages. And only one question about this lesson:Can we change these idioms? For example, I my son eats sweets very often and I think it can make him sick. Can I tell him: “You have a huge sweet tooth!” ?
Thank you Rebecca
Rebecca, thank you for your useful lesson! I’ve got a question: what form of the noun (singular or plural) should we use when we speak about them? For instance, they have eyes in the back of their head or heads?
what a great teacher!
thank you very much
Thank you so much
Thanks for the lesson! I have a question. If I want to apply any of the idioms for a group of people, should I use all its’ words in plural or not?
A. I guess all children have a sweet tooth
B. I guess all children have sweet teeth
C. As they fall in love they have their head in the clouds
D. As they fall in love they have their heads in the clouds
A, D are correct or not?
