cold-feetI’m currently creating a FREE video course on ‘idioms’ for learners of English as a second language. Anyone who speaks English as their first language uses idioms all the time but for English learners, idioms can cause a lot of confusion.
 .
 Example: Spiros is an English learner who understands the words ‘cold’ and ‘feet’. He hears an English friend say “John’s got ‘cold feet’ about asking Sarah out”.
 . 
Poor Spiros! What has the temperature of John’s feet got to do with asking Sarah out? What Spiros doesn’t realise is that to ‘get cold feet’ is an idiom that means to be ‘nervous’ or ‘scared’.
 .
So in my example; John’s too ‘nervous’ or ‘scared’ and so he isn’t brave enough to ask Sarah out.
 .
Idioms are very useful to learn if you are a learner of English as a second language.
