What is an Idiom?

An idiom is a phrase but it is different from other phrases in that you can’t understand its meaning from the words it is made from.

For instance, ‘a load of cobblers‘ has nothing to do with shoemakers and when people tell you to ‘break a leg‘ they don’t really mean it.

In order to speak the language the way native speakers do you need to understand and use idioms.
