A few days ago I was talking with a student about New Year’s Resolutions. We were quite positive about what we were going to achieve in 2019. One of her ideas was to try new things for each letter of the alphabet, so I thought I would take that idea and apply it to language learning. I will be posting an idiom and a vocabulary word for each letter of the alphabet.
Costs an arm and a leg
This idiom is used when something is very expensive.
Noun. strong feelings of embarrassment
Example: He watched his chance, and, at length, escaped, much to his enemies’ chagrin.
