Somewhere in the parallel universe a person just like you wake up on a Monday morning with a smiley face and a happy mood, gets everything done, comes to university, and has the best time ever. I wonder if Hollywood could make another sci-fi movie based on this plot. This sounds like the most unrealistic morning ever!
Have you ever watched a TV-show or talked to the English native-speaker and thought: “Wow, what is that even supposed to mean? I did not see that coming!” By “that” we mean a phrase, a word-combination which seems clear when you chop it into words, you know the meanings of these words! However, when you put them back together, it`s all just ridiculous and obscure. Idioms are a golden treasury of every language. And only if you use them in abundance in your daily conversations and essays, you may actually sound like a native speaker.
The amount of money you or your parents have shouldn`t determine your future. At least, that`s how the ideal world works. Look around. Do you find many perfect features in the universe that surrounds you right now? I knew it! So, the rule with money never works. All those banknotes aren`t supposed to decide your fate, but usually, they do, and there is nothing you can do about it.
If you have a well-thought-out opinion on a certain matter, why on earth you`re supposed to use weirdly structured patterns in order to fulfill someone`s expectations about your writing abilities? An essay is a way to express your creativity, individuality, and, of course, your opinion on a matter even if it`s a subjective one. Or so you thought. But when the university reality rushed into your life, breaking everything like a powerful hurricane, you realized that academic writing required following the rules.
Idioms are crazy. If you`re studying any foreign language, you`ll instantly support this idea with nodding in agreement. Because if we chop idioms into pieces, they make absolutely no sense at all. What is the first association that floats on the surface of your imagination when you hear a phrase like “donkey`s ears”? Yep, that`s a real idiom, it`s rare and a bit old-fashioned but it`s still applicable in your essay. It means “a really long time”.
