Learn your Idioms for Business English

5 mesi fa
Some intermediate level English language learners have difficulty understanding idioms (also called metaphors) used by native English speakers.

Idioms are groups of words and phrases with a meaning peculiar to the English language, and the group of words may not translate accurately into your own language. Additionally, the idioms' symbolic meanings are different from the meaning of the individual words.

In business communication, many idioms are used, so let’s discuss the ones you have heard. A popular idiom or metaphor you will hear in business is, 'let's look at the big picture'.
