journey through the strange and wonderful world of British idioms I’ve always guys don’t forget to
subscribe if you haven’t already and hit the notification belt so you don’t miss
one of our lessons right they say money talks so let’s start with money
number one is a penny for your thoughts a penny for your thoughts and basically
we say this when a person is looking thoughtful and we’d like to know what
they’re thinking now remember idioms are not literal so
it doesn’t mean I’m going to give them a penny for their thoughts but it does
mean that I’m almost would offer a penny in return for them sharing how they’re
feeling penny for your thoughts Leila hmm oh nothing
number two what a great phrase to look like a million dollars or in American
English to look like a million bucks now to look like a million dollars is really
quite easy to understand because it means you look fantastic you look like
you’ve dressed up fancy like you’re a rich person so if we say only goodness
you look like a million dollars you look amazing
we’re saying you look fantastic Leila I have to say in that dress you look like
a million dollars number three to be born with a silver spoon in one’s mouth
to be born with a silver spoon in his ha your mouth now basically this means that
we are born into privilege a silver spoon so a silver spoon meant that your
parents were probably wealthy you were born into riches now if we say this
about a person it’s not necessarily positive we often mean like oh he or she
did not work what they have they were just born into it right now we’re moving
to idioms which are related to the body because there are a lot of these in
English number four is to cost an arm and a leg and basically this means that
something costs a lot it’s so expensive that you might as well have had to pay
with your arm and your leg so often we say this when we think something is very
expensive we say oh my goodness that glass of wine cost me and
like number five to give someone the cold shoulder to give someone the cold
shoulder so basically what this means is if you give someone the cold shoulder
you ignore them it’s almost like saying you turn your back to them your your
back is cold towards them so if we say that somebody gave you the cold shoulder
it means big nor gee I saw my ex-boyfriend at the party but you
wouldn’t talk to me he gave me the cold shoulder number six is to have cold feet
to have cold feet and basically this means you are nervous about something or
you’re having second thoughts about something so we often use this if
somebody is having doubts or second thoughts before their wedding or before
making a big life decision so a big change in their life like starting a new
job buying a house getting committed to someone anything like that
number seven is a sight for sore eyes a sight for sore eyes
and basically this means boy am I happy to see you so if we say oh you’re a
sight for sore eyes we mean you’re a happy sight for my tired eyes so if we
haven’t seen someone for a while or if we’ve had a long day at work and then we
come home to see our girlfriend or boyfriend we might say oh you’re a sight
for sore eyes number eight this is off the top of my head off the top of my
head and this literally means that you haven’t thought much about something
you’re just guessing or answering spontaneously so a very common to hear
this in conversation if someone asked you your opinion but you’re not sure
about something but your initial thoughts are this you can say hmm well
off the top of my head and then say it like that right guys if you’re enjoying
this lesson but you’re starting to wonder about how you’re going to
remember all this vocabulary which is a common question vocabulary is of course
essential for learning a language but remembering it can be rather tricky and
is why we wrote a guide to learning and building your vocabulary which is an
e-book course so it teaches you how to learn more vocabulary by learning word
families how to record it effectively how to build up synonyms and there are
pages and pages of new vocabulary we also have three exclusive videos that
come with the course now if you’re not sure yet and you’d like to learn more
then you can get a free sample of the course on our website just head to the
link here so then you can try it out and see for yourself
what you think number nine to look down your nose at somebody to look down your
nose at somebody and this means to look down on someone so to be a little bit
snobby do you think you are superior or better than other people so if you say
our neighbors really look down their nose at us it must be because they live
in such a huge house so it could be that somebody is collabora
richer and higher status but obviously it is not nice behavior so if we say
someone looks down their nose we’re saying that’s knobby number 10 is to
play it by ear now this phrase is a little bit confusing because of course
be very difficult to play something with your ear unless maybe you’re playing
Chinese whispers but to play something by ear in fact means to play something
spontaneously to not make a fixed plan maybe because it’s difficult to make a
fixed plan so often we’ll say yeah maybe we could go out Saturday although I’m
not sure if I’m gonna have time I’ve got to all these chores but let’s stay in
touch and we’ll play it by ear number 11 to put your foot in your mouth
to put your foot in your mouth she’s very very hard to do unless you are very
good at Yoga now to put your foot in your mouth means to say something which
is inappropriate to say the wrong thing basically we often will shorten this to
saying I put my foot in it so basically it means we accidentally offend a person
by saying the wrong by saying something inappropriate so
I’ve done this before when I asked a friend how his girlfriend was and I said
oh how is your lovely girlfriend but I hadn’t seen on social media that they
had broken up and he was a little bit like he did not want to answer me so I
felt quite embarrassed and I definitely put my foot in it number 12 is get off
my back get off my back we use this expression when somebody is bothering us
a lot criticizing us or telling us what to do so we might say oh my boss really
won’t get off my back at the moment he’s all the time giving me new tasks to do
or telling me I’ve done something wrong they just can’t get him off my back or
sometimes we might talk about our parents this way we might say oh my
mum’s really on my back at the moment about things number 13 is to get
something off your chest to get something off your chest and this is
when we need to talk to somebody and we we want to tell them about how we’re
feeling or about a problem we have or confess something to them so we feel
like it’s almost here and we want to get it off your chest we
want to not be having it in sight anymore we want to share it with someone
so after we’ve perhaps shared our issues with someone we might say feels so much
better now I really needed to get that off my chest number 14 is keep your chin
up keep your chin up and basically this means come on cheer up it’s like vain
cheer up so if a person is feeling down a bit blue and you want to encourage
them to feel better or to be more cheerful you could say I’ll come on keep
your chin up it’s going to be okay number 15 my lips are sealed my lips are
sealed now if somebody says this this means my
lips are closed if something is filled it is completely closed over we cannot
get in there so for example a safe is sealed or something like this so if we
tell someone a secret it is quite appropriate for them to reply by saying
I’m going to tell anyone my lips are sealed
number 16 to be punching above your weight to be punching above
your weight and basically this means that you are going above the level which
normally you should be at or normally you are at so if we say oh she’s
punching above her weight with that new job we mean that we think she is not
quite appropriate for that level of job she’s gone to a level which is too high
for her not appropriate for her we often also use this about couples if we think
that one is not actually good enough for the other we can say how did he get her
he’s really punching above his weight or we might often shorten this to gosh he’s
punching or she’s punching meaning that guy or girl is just too perfect for them
too good for them number 17 to twist someone’s arm to twist someone’s arm
which would be quite painful however what it actually means is to persuade
somebody so if you twist someone’s arm you’re persuading them you’re coaxing
them to do something so if someone isn’t quite sure that they want to do
something they need some persuading then we would say we twist their arm we
persuade them and it doesn’t mean that we are very forceful about this even
though the phrase sounds like that it just means that we we find a way to make
them think that it is a good idea or it’s good for them now later I know
you’ve been eating a bit of chocolate and I think it would be good for you to
go out for a good healthy walk now it’s a beautiful day the sun is shining it
may be cold but once you get going you’ll be fine
come on what do you say oh right then just a short walk number 18 is to stab
someone in the back to stab someone in the back and basically this means that
you’ve betrayed someone or someone has betrayed you so if we say oh she stabbed
me in the back it means she betrayed my trust or she told my secret or she
became friends with the enemy anything like this right guys
moving on to idioms related to food because there are a lot of these so
number 19 is food for thought food for thought and this basically
means hmm this is worth considering so if we say okay that new offer it’s it’s
food for thought meaning I’m gonna think about it I’m
going to consider it number 20 is gone pear-shaped which basically means
something has gone wrong gone very wrong in fact if we so what it’s all gone
pear-shaped I don’t know why your pear inspired this idiom obviously a pear
doesn’t seem to look quite right maybe because it’s not round but basically if
we say it’s gone pear-shaped it’s all gone horribly wrong number 21 is in a
nutshell in a nutshell and this basically means to summarize to
summarize something so if we say okay in a nutshell the present perfect tense is
the connecting tense between the past and the present so this would mean this
is it in summary in a nutshell in a very small
space number 22 like chalk and cheese if we say that two people are like chalk
and cheese it means they’re complete opposites chalk and cheese are pretty
not similar so talk you can’t eat cheese you can so we could say that couple it’s
amazing they get on so well because they’re like chalk and cheese
number 23 this is the opposite of the phrase this is like two peas in a pod
it’s a very cute phrase like two peas in a pod and it means very very similar
very good friends often or very compatible so if we say my daughters get
on so well they’re so similar they’re two peas in a pod
I have a question for you guys do you think Leila and I are two peas in a pod
or do you think we’re like chalk and cheese what’s your opinion tell us about
that in the comments below number 24 is selling like hotcakes
selling like hotcakes basically this means something
is selling very fast it’s really really popular so if we say the new Harry
Potter Wow it’s selling like hotcakes it means
it’s flying off the shelves yet many people are buying it number 25 is the
cream of the crop the cream of the crop and if you think about the fact that
cream is the richest the most delicious part of milk this is basically what it
means it means the best of a group so crops of course are fruit and vegetables
which we grow and then harvest so if we say the cream of that we mean that the
best of that so the best of a group number 26 is the icing on the cake the
icing on the cake basically this means in a very good
situation already something extra happens that’s good
it’s almost like the cherry on the top which is another idiom so the icing on
the cake the extra things that made it special with something that’s already
good however we can also use this in the negative we can say that was the icing
on the cake as in in an already negative situation the extra thing that made it
even worse number 27 this is a nice easy one it is
to be the breadwinner to be the breadwinner and this is basically the
person who earns the most in the family it’s a person who’s bringing home the
bread so bringing home the money the food everything like that
of course in many countries today you often will have both parents as the
breadwinner so this is a little bit old-fashioned now however we do still
use it sometimes number 28 is to butter someone up to butter someone up and
basically this means to be extra nice to somebody to give them compliments to
flatter them because you want something because you would like them to do you a
favor or you want special treatment something like this so you might say I’m
really buttering my boss up at the moment I’m taking her a coffee everyday
because I really need some extra holiday number 29 is to egg some
on to egg someone on and this means to encourage a person to do a bad thing to
encourage them to do something which is a bit naughty for example so an example
sentence could be she wasn’t sure about playing the practical joke on the
teacher but her classmate egged her on so they encouraged her to go on go on do
it so this is to egg someone on number 30 is a nice simple one it is to have a
bun in the oven and this means to be pregnant to be expecting a baby so you
have to be a little bit careful with this phrase though because you can’t say
to somebody you don’t know very well Oh congratulations on your bun in the oven
it’s informal number 31 is to spill the beans to spill the beans and this means
to tell a secret or to tell information that was supposed to be private for now
usually this is by accident if we spill the beans we didn’t know that we were
supposed to keep it secret or we didn’t know that other people didn’t know
something like this so to spill the beans that’s right guys 12 amazing
lessons for you this Christmas Leila don’t spill the beans it’s supposed to
be a sweet fruit oh sorry number 32 if to take something with a
pinch of salt to take something with a pinch of salt this means that you don’t
necessarily believe it’s the whole truth so if you say I’m gonna take that with a
pinch of salt it means I’m not going to completely believe that I’m not sure
that it’s the complete truth okay guys these next two they’re not in a
particular category they are miscellaneous but they’re good ones for
you to know so number 33 is to be barking up the wrong tree to be barking
up the wrong tree so barking is of course what a dog does
so imagine a dog barking at a tree and basically it means that if you’re
barking up the wrong tree you have been looking in the wrong place or you’re
misguided in your judge about something so for example you could
be accusing the wrong person of something or thinking that somebody is
suitable for something when they are not so an example sentence would be he’s
really barking up the wrong tree if he thinks I fancy him number 34 is a taste
of your own medicine a taste of your own medicine and basically this is that you
treat someone else the way they have been treating to you and normally this
is negative so if he’s so right I’m going to give him a taste of his own
medicine basically it means that you’re going to show her how she’s been
treating you you’re going to behave in the same way right guys now we are
moving on to animals idioms with animals number 35 is to make a mountain out of a
molehill now a mole is a little animal which digs underground and when it comes
up it makes a little hill people usually don’t like them in their gardens because
they ruin their lovely gardens but if we make a mountain out of a molehill this
means we make something or a big thing out of nothing so we can say oh why did
she make such a big deal about the date of the party changing she really made a
mountain out of a molehill so to make a big thing about something which is
actually very small and unimportant number Bertie thinks is to put the cat
amongst the pigeons so imagine if you throw a cat or put a cat probably better
amongst a group of pigeons the pigeons would probably be quite worried
frightened shocked so if we say that something puts the cat amongst the
pigeons it means that the reaction that is created by that thing is shock worry
confusion this kind of thing so it’s usually something unexpected that
happens which causes people to feel those emotions number 37 is the lion’s
share and a lion’s share and basically this means the bigger portion of
something so this could be money or food very often it’s actually food so
basically it means the bigger amount which we give to someone number 30
is hold your horses hold your horses this of course comes from the time when
we used to get around by using a horse and cart and if we held our horses this
means we would slow them down or make them stop so basically the idiom is very
logical it means slow down hang on so if somebody is making a lot of plans
without our agreement or talking a lot and we can’t keep up you can say whoa
hold your horses number 39 to let the cat out of the bag
to let the cat out of the bag and this just means to reveal a secret the same
as to spill the beans so when you accidentally all perhaps sometimes on
purpose say something which is supposed to be a secret number 40 is a wild goose
chase a wild goose chase and basically this means a chase or a search for
something which is probably quite difficult to find so if we say oh it was
a wild goose chase trying to find that secret party that everybody was talking
about this means it was very difficult to find the poverty you felt like you
were driving all over the place and you couldn’t find it so you felt like you
were chasing a wild goose number 41 is to be in the doghouse to be in the
doghouse and basically this means you are in trouble or you have upset another
person and they are not speaking to you because they’re upset with you because
you did something wrong so often we use this about our partners for example if
they forget something which they were supposed to remember like a birthday oh
we definitely put them in the doghouse to be upset with Darlene we make them
know that they were not happy with them so an example sentence would be Layla is
still in the doghouse after making her husband miss his basketball game number
42 is to kill two birds with one stone to kill two birds with one stone and
basically this means to get two actions done with one thing so for example if
you say okay I’m gonna pick the children up and
do the shopping at the same time as the school is near I’m gonna kill two birds
with one stone number 43 is to make a beeline to make a
beeline and this means to go straight for to head directly for something so
for example when I go to airports I always make a beeline for the duty-free
perfumes and chocolates I love going to try on the perfumes looking at the
discounts so I don’t do I don’t go anywhere else I head straight there so
to make a beeline number 44 to smell a rat this is when you begin to get
suspicious about something something doesn’t feel quite right and you begin
to suspect that there is trickery or betrayal involved so an example sentence
would be when the politicians started to delay implementing their promises the
public smelt a rat number 45 is straight from the horse’s mouth straight from the
horse’s mouth and this just means directly from the original source you
heard it or you were told it from the original source you didn’t hear it from
someone else you heard it from that person so if you say well I know that
Jenni’s going to leave the job because I heard it from the horse’s mouth this
means Jenny told me herself number 46 is to take the bull by the
horns which would be very very dangerous basically this means to face boldly a
difficult situation or challenge so not to avoid it to directly confront it so
for example we could say if you really want to promotion at work you should
take the bull by the horns go and speak to the boss directly about it
number 47 is until the cows come home and this means a very long time so if we
say oh you’ll wait until the cows come home this means you’ll wait for a very
long time number 48 is to pig out or to bark out this means to eat a lot pigs
famously have a big Appetite they usually enjoy their food
and like to eat a lot so if we say we pick out
it means we too lot we we have enjoy a large quantity of food
number 49 is pigs might fly pigs might fly and we say this when we think
something is very unlikely to happen so we think it’s almost impossible like
winning the lottery so if Laila said to me savor it one day
you might meet your dream man you might meet Ryan Gosling I could say huh I’d
like to think that but pigs might fly finally the last one we made it to the
end to chicken out to chicken out now chickens are not known for being
particularly brave so if we chicken out of something it means we decide not to
do something that we are scared of we chicken out in fact if we think somebody
is being a coward not being brave we can say ah you’re being such a chicken so to
chicken out phrasal verb to not do something that you are afraid of to
decide I can’t do it right guys we’ve come to the end of our journey through
the wonderful world of British idiom I do hope some of these are a little bit
clearer for you now and you feel more confident about using them and I also
hope that they’ve entertained you do try and use any of them in a sentence and I
will check that for you we’ll see you soon on love English bye bye

    49. Pigs might fly – said when you think that there is no chance at all of something happening.

    50. To chicken out – When you are too scared to do something and you refuse. ‘I chickened out about the presentation’.

  13. It's so entertaining your class, I can learn so much. Congratulation for that. English is a language not than easy to dominate. But with you I can learn a bit more idionatic expression.

  14. I've been aching for the job for a very long time and out of the blue my boss told me yesterday that your are promoted for that job. When I told my sister this thing she said, "I won't believe you unless I hear this straight from the horse mouth".

  15. Hi Sabrah Gargi here . You know here in India we have so many idioms common to yours … To be born with a silver spoon in mouth is one of them , I was so amazed to see that

  16. Dear Sabrah
    This letter is for expressing my thoughts for you . I really love you and Leila . You two are so adorable that I can't stop watching you everyday . Sometimes I think that it would be the best if I was one of your family members especially your sister . If I was your sister I would also join you in your videos and spend all day with you . This is my dad's phone but I want you to know that when I'll get my own , I'll be following you here and your other social networks . But there's a problem that occurs . I've decided to go to London when I grow up but I don't know exactly where you live in there . I'm afraid I won't be able to find you . Lemme become an adult and I'll be there . I'm so sad cuz I need three more years to be an adult but don't worry I'll definitely meet you two . Hope you two are doing well .
    Yours ever ,
    G

  17. I do not know you're language, I am telling hindi very well, our nation language in Hindi, so how I would learn language, because there are not atmosphere, get me solution and get me answer

  18. Mam i have a question. If i go to a certain barber shop once a month am i a regular to that shop or i can use regular word for that????? That will be big help😐😐

  19. Sabrah has disclosed in a previous video that she does not eat meat; Leila absolutely does.
    Based solely on you two have shared with your subscribers, I would surmise that both Leila and Sabrah are like two peas in a pod. The similarities make up for the minor differences. Why share a channel when each one is equally qualified to have her own? (rhetorical question)

  20. YouTube, you're doing such a great job. Congrats xD
    Now seriously, you say "play something by ear" it means not to plan something, to decide what to do spontaneously VG: my friends and I hadn't decided what to do on New Year's Eve yet, we will play it by ear. But can I use that idiom literally? For instance : you play very well the piano, you learnt that song in the school or you're playing by ear?
    Thank you so much for the lesson and have a Nice Christmas both of you ❤🔥
