Halloween English Idioms with Papa Teach Me


Come learn with us. Come learn with us students. Forever and ever and ever. Hello and welcome to Eat Sleep Nightmare English.
We are going to be taking you through five super scary idioms. To ghost someone is to
end a romantic relationship suddenly and without telling the other person. Basically you stop
calling them. That sounds mean. It’s terribly mean. But why would someone do that? Maybe
they are scared of commitment. A commitment-phobe if you will. Or maybe they found someone else.
Someone better. Have you ever ghosted anyone? No, I prefer to break up with people in person.
So I can watch the tears fall down their cheeks. And lick their tears? Yes, and lick their
tears. If you say you could murder something it means
you really want this thing. This usually refers to food or drink. On a summer’s day you might
say ‘I could murder a cold glass of Coca Cola’. Or any other named brand beverage. Is there
anything you want right now? Yes, I could murder a pint. Me too! Another phrase that
we use that’s very similar to this is I’m dying for something. It means we really want
this. The difference is we can use it for more than just food and drink. For example
‘I’m dying for the loo.’ That’s not what you said in rehearsal. You said I was dying for
a ****. I did not. Anyway we don’t use that kind of profanity on Eat Sleep Dream English.
What, you mean you don’t say **** ***** ****** **** ****. Our forth idiom refers to pain. If you say
something is killing you, it means it’s causing you physical or emotional pain. For example
after a long walk you might say ‘My feet are killing me’. This means they are causing you
pain. Yes, or if you have a headache you could say ‘My head is killing me.’ Is it literally
killing you? Is it ending your life? No, it’s an idiom. I’m not an idiot. An idiom, not
an idiot. You are the idiot. Our final word is gutted. This is an informal adjective which
means very disappointed. For example if you fail a test or if your team loses in a sports
match you might be gutted. When was the last time you felt gutted? When **** ******* died
in Game of Thrones. Oh yes just like when **** ******** dies in the Walking Dead. Thank
you for watching, now watch our other video.
