Idiomatic Expressions

Idiomatic expressions are phrases whose meanings cannot be inferred from the literal meanings of the individual words. They are a significant aspect of natural language use and are often culturally specific. Examples of idiomatic expressions in English include "kick the bucket" (to die), "break the ice" (to start a conversation in a social setting), and "hit the nail on the head" (to describe something accurately). Teaching idiomatic expressions helps language learners understand and use the target language more naturally and fluently. It also enriches their vocabulary and cultural knowledge.
