Interested in Language
I have recently found a game which is about phrases. It is a good practice but very difficult. I found some of their meanings in this website but not all; so I need help to know where we have to use these phrases. These are as follows:
1- Boot camp
2- Track record
3- Under the thumb
4- Spread betting
5- A sorry sight
6- Arm candy
7- Walking tall
8- Spin doctor
9- Breaking bad
10- Keep it up
11- Apple of my eye
Many thanks for your help!
We need some input from you first, Marjan.
Tell us what you have found out for yourself, and include the phrases in sentences of your own.
Dear tzfujimino, thanks for your help.
I've found those pharases in a game, which I recently started in my mobile. Actually there's no sentences, they are showing as animation and we have to understand what phrases they mean. Sorry there is no sentences!
I hope you will come back and make your own sentences using some of those expressions.
However, click here to find examples of the phrases used in a variety of contexts.
Ask again if you have a specific question about any one of them (not all 11 at once) with a new thread title relevant to each.
