Thread: idiom

  1. easylearner


    Dear Teachers,

    In the following please explain to me what is meant by (glitzy surface,
    financial whizzkids, a bedsit in a queer street)

    Beneath the glitzy surface, the financial whizzkids of the world are mostly
    on the road to alcoholism, lonliness, a bedsit in a queer street or sometimes all three
