American idioms don’t make a lick of sense-literally. They are a group of words that are not predictable. Idioms are derived from dialects or jargon from different regions of the country. If someone can’t make heads of tails of an issue, it has nothing to do with heads or tails, it means they can’t figure something out.

Use it or lose it means something needs active participation or it will get rusty, diminish, or disappear. Like Language. Did you spend years studying English only to have it fade away after school because you have no one to talk to? That’s what’s happening to my Spanish.
I’m offering conversation classes on Skype to help you maintain your grip on English, your fluidity. Book 30 to 90 minutes, 1 to 5 times a week, depending on your schedule and it won’t cost an arm and leg. I teach any level & believe learning should be fun. Topics can be just about anything. Your choice.
So, let’s get this show on the road. Times a wastin.’Email me for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
