How to learn English idioms easily – Week 2

Learn English idioms

As I already told you, native English speakers learn idioms naturally even without noticing it. At first they just hear or read them. Then they gradually start using these idioms in their speaking and writing.

You, as an English learner, you have to avoid memorizing idioms.
Instead, you have to use new idioms on a regular basis and as often as possible.
Doing this, you are more likely going to integrate them in your vocabulary like native English speakers do.


7 New Idioms…

There’s NO WAY TO learn English in only a week.
(Absolutely not)
I like to WRITE DOWN good ideas that come to my mind in order not to forget them.
(To make notes)
IT’S TOO BAD that you’re not going to come to my birthday!
(Regretting something)
I CAME ACROSS a bag full of money in the street and I gave it to the police.
(To find by accident)
Whenever there’s a bad smell, she CHECKS OUT every room to find out where it comes from.
(To inspect)
I NEED YOU TO clean the house because I have to go to work.
(To ask someone to do something)

How To Learn English Idioms Easily?

If you want to grow your English vocabulary, I recommend you to work whith these idioms for a while until you assimilate them.

Don’t memorize them. You’re going to forget them as soon as you try to memorize new ones. The worst way to learn new vocabulary is to write down endless lists of new words and then trying to memorize them one after another.

If you really want to learn English idioms easily I recommend you to:

  1. Check my new post with brand new idioms every week.
  2. For 7 days in a row, try to make sentences with every one of these 7 idioms once a day.
  3. Force yourself to use them as much as possible whenever you have to speak or write in English.
  4. In a future come back randomly to any of these posts to review your idioms.

Doing that, instead of just memorizing these idioms, chances are that you are going to assimilate them and using them naturally whenever you speak or write in English.


And Remember These Idioms…

    Hi, I think one of your example sentences is grammatically wrong. It should be:

    I like to WRITE DOWN good ideas that come to my mind in order to NOT forget them.
