Vocabulary: idioms: emotions 1
Many different idioms illustrate feelings and emotions.
Those expressions are illustrating different and very subjective emotions and are often full of imagery.
Of course, they differ in the different languages. Let's see that!
To bare one's heart
To be bored to tears
To carry a torch for someone
To have a chip on one's shoulder
To come apart at the seams
To be like a fish out of water
To get a grip on oneself
To go off the deep end
To go to pieces
To get hot under the collar
"No hard feelings!
Hard as nails
To put your foot in your mouth
To let off steam
To be on tenterhooks
To think the world of somebody
To wear one's heart on
To be written over someone's face
To go bananas
To feel in a stew
Yes, that makes quite a lot of expressions to remember... (there will be a second lesson! ), but you must admit that they are easy to understand and remember!
It's your turn, now! I give you THE FORCE!
