    Put me cold

    Hi,

    What it means " her classes leave me cold". Does it means her classes are not interesting? Is it an idiom?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Re: Put me cold

    It probably means that the classes didn't stir any enthusiasm in that person. "Cold" can mean "showing no enthusiasm". I'm not sure if it's an idiom, because it may be understood by a person that doesn't know it. But it is a fixed expression: leave cold - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Re: Put me cold

    Your title would have been better as "leave me cold".
