    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               

                Sweet nothings!             


              To be on tenterhooks   

      To think the world of somebody    

                To wear one's heart on

                     one's sleeves 


         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!
