You Can Only Complete These Phrases If You Are An English Wizard

We use idioms all the time in writing and conversation. These are combinations of words or phrases that don’t always literally mean what they say. If you say someone has “cold feet”, it doesn’t mean their toes are actually cold. Rather, it means they’re nervous about something. Think of common phrases such as “it’s raining cats and dogs”,”kick the bucket”, “spill the beans”, and “once in a blue moon”. Now, we’ve never witnessed cats and dogs actually falling from the sky, we’re pretty sure that kicking a bucket wouldn’t kill you, spilling the beans is generally rather harmless, and the moon isn’t actually blue. But we understand the figurative meaning of such expressions and use them quite regularly.

Every language exists with its own sayings, which makes using the language more colorful and fun. Are you a wiz at the English language? If you are, then this quiz should be easy as pie. Can you complete these common English phrases by filling in the missing words? The ball is in your court now.
