    Question

    Dear Teacher,
    I have two questions that related to idioms:
    1-Somebody goes somewhere for a short while,but says memories for the nth time.
    2-Someone wants sth ,pretends they don't want it but try to get it.
    3-I may give an example in my speech and our addressee says you mean me and I tell him/her I don't mean you,it is just an example.
    Thank you
    Naser

    Re: Question

    I think, he means, which idioms should we use in these cases? Or something like that, I am not sure.

    Re: Question

    The fact that you had to use "I think" and "but I am not sure" should have led you to think "It's probably not worth posting. I'll wait for the OP to respond". Most of us could have hazarded a guess as to the OP's intended question but it's always better to wait until we get an answer from the OP, otherwise threads would be full of suggested meanings and assumptions.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Question

    Dear emsr2d2:

    Thanks for your reminder. As far as I understand, we must wait for Op's answer before sending any post. But we need to improve our English, as you know. That's way we want to write and talk. However I try to follow the forum's rules. Maybe this post became a new mistake abaut that topic but I need your help and understanding.

    Re: Question

    I understand that and it's because you're new that I didn't simply delete your post. Hopefully, you and other users will have learnt something from this thread. I look forward to eventually reading the OP's response.
