keep your eye on the ball. In this lesson, I will introduce you to nine idioms which come from different ball sports such as baseball, golf, soccer, and football. These are commonly used by native English speakers in spoken and written English. You will learn expressions like,
the ball is in your court,
let’s get into the swing,
let’s get the ball rolling,
to move the goalposts,
get into the swing,
to need a level playing field,
not up to par,
out of your league, and more. Whether you love or hate sports, these expressions will be useful to you in everyday conversation. After watching the lesson, be sure to complete the quiz to practise what you’ve learned.
