Students love to learn English idioms, I think, because it is an advanced form of the language and if you can use an idiom correctly then it can make you feel like 'an insider' and more like a native English speaker.So, for this article, have a look at some amazing street art photos below. I have added an idiomatic phrase to each picture for you 'to learn English without really studying'.
1. It's like learning to ride a bike.
Something that is easy to learn and you will never forget how to do it. Ever!
2. It's not my cup of tea.
Something that I don't like very much.
3. I'll love you and leave you.
I have to go now.
4. You can thank your lucky stars.
You should be very thankful because you were VERY lucky with something.
5. Sweep it under the carpet.
Try to forget something bad that happened. (usually by not talking about it)
6. Use the force.
This is not a classic idiom that you will find in an English textbook, but a LOT of people say it. It is the famous line from the Star Wars films. When people say this to each other in real life, it kind of means "Use some different kind of magic power (that does not exist) to be able to do something that is difficult."
This picture is a play on words, because in the UK the full name for the police is 'the police force'.
这张图有点文字游戏的感觉，因为在英国警察的全称是'the police force'.
