Learn About Idioms with #KaplanEnglishTips

If you've been following our blog, you'll know how much we love idioms. English speakers use them every day, and they can often be hard to understand when you are first learning English because the meaning behind these phrases is more figurative than literal. So we at Kaplan decided to put together some handy videos that help explain in greater depth exactly what some of the most popular idioms mean and how you can use them in your every day English conversations.

Take a look at some of our favorite idioms below, all of which can be used to talk about timing. Whether you are looking to ask someone to slow down or to encourage them to hurry up and get to the point, remember these idioms and add them into your English conversations later on.


Cut to the chase


Hold your Horses


Beat around the bush


Jump the gun


Out of the blue
