Okies I liked seeing the thread on English and lots of MFCers dont have English as their first language

 

This thread is for me / us / the MFC to help you :thumb_yello:

 

Feel free to ask questions about phrases or slang or general sentances that you see and we will try and help

 

I do see that "slang" english catches people out so we will try and answer

 

English speakers feel free to help

Ha, weird English idioms.

 

One I like is "(to) hit the nail on the head." It means, to get something exactly right.

 

PERSON A: Wow, Freddiesdouble is so mega awesome!

PERSON B: Yup, you hit the nail on the head with that one!

Another one I hear is "the coolest thing since sliced bread."

 

It implies that pre-sliced bread, as opposed to having to slice it yourself, is one of THE coolest things ever - only, whatever else you're referring to is even cooler.

 

"Guys, did you hear that Freddiesdouble just spent a year's pay on a Porsche?"

 

"Ha, that's the coolest thing since sliced bread."
