Back to School Idioms 5

Step 1

Study the PowerPoint slides 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:You look happy…
Eric:Yes, I’ve just aced my physics exam!
Alex:Physics, eh? I remember I could not pass any of those science exams without my cheat sheets!
Eric:It wasn’t easy for me either. I had to pull an all-nighter!
Alex:Yes, I remember the time when I was burning the candle at both ends. I am glad my studying days are over!
Eric:I still have a long way to go but I am not complaining. I am putting myself through school and I am happy.
Alex:Yes, well, congratulations for your success!
Eric:Thanks Alex! Nice talking to you!
Alex:Bye, Eric!
