    Hello Matilda

    It means "This must cease I won't tolerate any more of this!".

    Hello
    I think enough is enough means enough but its emphasized and you say it when you cant tolerate any more

    thanks all

    i think my teacher uses this in the wrong place. because he uses this in almost every sentence, and i thought it may have a strong meaning

    Hello Matilda

    You're right you usually say it when you want to be forcible or assertive.

    It can also be used humorously (as mock-assertiveness).
