SERVISABLE : Pillole di inglese --- IDIOMI

Quanti modi di dire ..
Ogni lingua ne ha a migliaia .. e se ci parlassero cosi' ??
Noi vi aiutiamo con sette pillole .. una al giorno fino a sabato prossimo :) 

Idiom: "make a mountain out of a molehill" = to make a major issue out of a minor one; to exaggerate the importance of a minor problem.

Idiom: "Blow hot and cold" = If you blow hot and cold on an idea, your attitude and opinion keeps changing; one minute you are for it, the next you are against.
Do you often blow hot and cold?

Idiom: "add insult to injury" = to make a bad situation worse; to hurt the feelings of a person who has already been hurt. 
eg. My car barely started this morning, and to add insult to injury, I got a flat tire in the driveway.

Idiom: "The early bird catches the worm" = if you start something early, you stand a better chance of success.

Idiom: "Run with the hare and hunt with the hounds" = If someone runs with the hare and hunts with the hounds, he tries to support or go with two opposing views, causes or factions at the same time.

Idiom: "Piece of cake." = If something is a piece of cake, it is really easy to do.
eg. Don't worry, the test will be a piece of cake.

and last but not least ....
