    Hi Huan,
    Welcome to the forum.
    Have you checked the meaning of the idiom in the dictionary?
    Please capitalize the first letter of the sentence and use correct punctuation.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Please note my changes above. That is how post #1 should have looked. As you now know, though, the first part was unnecessary.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And a warm welcome from me, Huan.

    Take a look at the explanation in the link below. Make sure to also click on "more example sentences" to see how that expression is typically used. Post below if you still need help with it.
