For Life

There are thousands of idioms in the English language, and students are always eager to learn as many of them as possible, especially the more colorful ones - “It's raining cats and dogs,” for example. But this and many other equally interesting expressions actually play a very minor role in the modern lexicon. That's why any idiom we choose to introduce you to here at WordMaster must first pass two tests: Is it current? And is it useful?

Well, during the next four days, we're going to tell you all about four idioms that passed both tests with honors! Enjoy!
