Lies Idioms

Step 1

Study the PowerPoint to learn this week’s idioms.

Step 2

Now that you are a little more familiar with the idioms, listen to the dialogue. Can you hear the idioms in the conversation?


Now, read the script of the dialog. Listen to the dialog again. This is one of the best ways to build your listening skills!

Alex:Hi Eric!
Eric:Hi Alex!
Alex:Still sad about that funny business that cost you 300 dollars?
Eric:Yeah, it’s not only the money, it’s the unpleasant feeling that someone took you for a ride…
Alex:Oh, I know the feeling! It’s not like I I hadn’t had dust thrown in my eyes before…
Eric:It doesn’t feel good at all! I still can’t believe that I felt for all that smoke and mirrors…
Alex:Don’t beat yourself up too much! It happens all the time! Now you will know better when someone tries to stretch the truth with you.
Eric:I guess…thanks Alex, I feel better now!
Alex:Yeah! Cheer up! All is good!
Eric:Bye, Alex!
Alex:Bye, Eric!
