Hi, my name's Fred and I'm a former advertising professional who now teaches English in Rome, Italy. I have developed over 12 educational courses on Udemy with over 12,000 satisfied students. I'm very excited to bring you this new course on English proverbs. Let's begin:
Welcome to this fun and easy guide to popular proverbs used in the English language!
This course contains short and simple lectures which provide real examples to help explain the meaning of each proverb. We learn proverbs, because they can help us communicate more naturally with native (or mother tongue speakers).
I don't need to study proverbs, ther most important part of a language is grammar!
Yes, you need to study grammar. You also need to practice writing, and speaking, and listening......etc. However, learning things such as proverbs (or idioms) can help you take your language skills to the next level. If you want to really enjoy the local culture of a country, it helps if you can speak in the same way as the local people.
Enjoy practicing your new skills!
This course provides you with an opportunity to practice your knowledge. You will find plenty of practice activities to help you grow confidence around using proverbs.
Remember, learning a language should be fun and not stressful. I hope you enjoy the course, and I look forward to your feedback.
A very popular proverb which we enjoy using when we travel/visit a new country or city.
We use this in situations where someone wants what they DON'T have!
Have you ever been with someone and suddenly they have exactly the same idea as you?? Great minds think alike..
This proverb is used to highlight the advantages of waking up early, before anyone else!
If you have a friend who talks too much instead of taking action, then this proverb is perfect!
We use this proverb when we find it difficult to change our usual behaviour/habits.
Which proverb should be used in this situation?
Sometimes it's better to hear no news than bad news...
It's easy to talk about something, but is it easy to do it?
Trying to organise a party with the help of 15 people?? Maybe it's better to have just one person helping you.
If someone does something bad to you, should you do something bad to them? Remember, two wrongs don't make a right...
What's more important, family or friends?
Don't go against someone who supports you!
