    Re: Idiomatic Expressions

    Welcome to the forum.

    Have you Googled these phrases? Your member profile says you are an English teacher - surely you have plenty of resources for finding out information about the language you teach.

    Remember that every sentence must end with a single, appropriate punctuation mark and that there was no reason to capitalise "idiomatic expressions". The word before that should have been "these", not "this".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
