We all miss going to the movies! Thanks to Netflix and other online movie services because we can continue watching movies at home. Watching a movie doesn’t only make learning fun. It also helps us learn vocabulary words and expressions used by native speakers. Movie watching provides us context analysis that will help us better remember them. Learn several movie idioms and expressions for social and even business situations. 

  1. Piece of Cake

It means that something is easy to do or accomplish.


The homework that our Math teacher gave us is a piece of cake. I was able to finish it in 5 minutes.

2.Break a leg

-This is a phrase of encouragement typically said to someone who’s about to go on stage as a way of wishing them good luck.

Example: It’s almost time for your exam. Break a leg!

3.Bend over backwards

-To try hard /harder in doing/accomplishing something.

Example: I have bent over backwards in getting my promotion; it was not just pure luck.

4.Be on the same page

-for both parties to understand and agree with what is being said.

Example: We have discussed the contract, and pretty much both of us are on the same page.

5.Sick as a dog

Do you want a break from studying grammar points through the textbooks? Try watching English movies or series. Don’t forget that English learning can be fun and educational at the same time.
