IELTS Tips: Common Idioms for Speaking Part.12

Mastering idioms not only enhances your language proficiency but can also significantly elevate your IELTS speaking score. Idiomatic expressions add a layer of sophistication to your language use, demonstrating a deep understanding of English nuances. In everyday conversations, these idioms become powerful tools to convey complex ideas with brevity and flair. They not only make you a more engaging speaker but also showcase a cultural awareness that is highly valued in language assessments like IELTS. In this context, we will explore four idioms.

1. The elephant in the room

Meaning:

The big issue, the problem people are avoiding.

Example sentence:

I don’t want to ask the question, but it is the big elephant in the room.

2. As right as rain

Meaning:

When something is perfect or in good order or good health.

Example sentence:

After a good night’s sleep, I thought I’d feel as right as rain, but I’m still exhausted.

3. Get wind of something

Meaning:

Hear news of something secret.

Example sentence:

I don’t want my colleagues to get wind of the fact that I’m leaving.

4. Bolt from the blue

Meaning:

Bolt from the blue something that happened without warning.

Example sentence:
