If you understand and know when to use idioms, you'll sound more like a native English speaker, since we use idioms all the time.

British English Idioms You May Not Know

2021-09-09T06:52:10+01:00

If you've been reading the Bespeaking blog for a while, then you'll know that we think learning idioms (turns of phrase, set phrases in a culture) are a great way to learn a language. One of the issues (problems) with learning English, however, is that there are a few different kinds of English you can learn. American English and British English are the two leading types of English for non-native speakers to learn, but people in Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and other English speaking countries have different ways of saying things, different slang, and different idioms from each other.

Polish Loan Words in English

2021-08-25T11:19:20+01:00

What's your favorite country to visit? In Europe, one of the countries I like the most is Poland. I haven't been to Poland very much, but I've always enjoyed myself when I've been there.

There are quite a few Polish loan words in English, and some of them I found pretty shocking (surprising)! I had no idea that some of these common words came from Polish! [...]

I've always loved watching the Olympic Games. The Olympics are, in my opinion, a great way to promote (advocate, encourage) international cooperation (working together).

Measurements in English

2021-08-11T04:25:18+01:00

Last week on the Bespeaking blog, we talked about basic shapes in English. And we realized that when you're learning a language, sometimes you don't know the simplest (most simple) things.

There are lots of things we have to remember in life.
