Accent Pros is happy to announce a new segment in the accent reduction blog called – Common English Phrases & Idioms.
Many of our clients at Accent Pros, who come in for accent reduction sessions, have advanced degrees and have excellent command of the English language. Given the evolving state of the English language; however, they may not understand informal slang and phrases that are regularly used in the workplace, and on various popular social media. Occasionally our accent reduction clients will understand the meaning of an idiom, but use it in an improper context, which could potentially have embarrassing consequences.
Here we will explore common American English phrases, descriptions, and use them in an example to help you understand the full breadth of the saying.
After enjoying the idioms, treat yourself to a free accent reduction tutorial available in over fifty languages here on the website.
