What To Say When You're Feeling Stuck In English?

hace 6 meses
Have you ever been in a situation when you are talking in English to someone and then all of a sudden the next word you were going to say is gone? Now you cannot think of the right word...

I know this can seem very frustrating. A situation like this happens to native English speakers ALL THE TIME. The good news is, there is a very common idiom we like to use to help explain in these types of situations.

If you ever find yourself in a situation like this you could respond with, 'I forgot the word. It's on the tip of my tongue!'
This idiom means something we almost remember but not quite...

There are so many more helpful idioms and everyday expressions we use that help us to get out of tricky situations. If you would like to learn some more to help with your fluency or whatever your goals are, send me a message! I would love to help you with your English journey :)
