English language is full of idioms and native speakers use them all the time.
Upon my relocation to London, I began encountering various English idioms and colloquialisms—those peculiar words and sayings that you won't typically find in a standard phrasebook but are commonly heard on the city streets. Being someone who finds visuals helpful for memory retention, I have compiled a few examples below, depicted through illustrations.
"The elephant in the room".
"To beat about the bush."
"Out of the blue"
"A dog's breakfast"
"A Good Egg"
"To Get Cold Feet"
