In my last two posts in this series, I showed you several different idioms. Idioms are fun, playful phrases that have special meanings. They are used during informal conversation. You may hear them on some TOEFL audio tracks, and you may even want to use them on the TOEFL— or use them in regular English conversation.
Now enjoy the third idiom list, comic strip, and activity:
- chow down
- couch potato
- pull someone’s leg
- read someone’s mind
- take it easy
The Magoosh Comic:
Read the comic. The idioms from the list are underlined. Based on what’s happening in the comic, can you guess the meanings of each idiom? To check your answers, go to Dennis Oliver’s idiom dictionary. You can find the idioms by looking them up in alphabetical order, based on the first letter of the first word of each idiom, as it appears in the list at the beginning of this post.
