The English language is a funny thing, not only because it's very complicated- just ask the foreigners- but also because we say things that don't make sense while making perfect sense. In which other language can you tell a person to break a limb and they respond with a smile and a thank you? And while we're not sure why or how phrases came to be, we are thankful for their presence, because they do make speaking more fun.
And we're about to have some fun in this quiz by asking you what some common phrases mean. We'll ask you a question about how a sentence or question should be phrased and it'll be your job to choose the idiom or figure of speech that does just that. We'll talk about breaking legs, costing arms and legs, letting cats go free and spilling some beans. If you can answer enough of our questions to pass this quiz, we'll crown you an English expert.
So, if you'd like to prove to us that you know your phrases as well as you think you do, it's time to start answering our questions.
