Idiom workout: feelings

Being able to use idioms in their natural context is not always easy for non-native speakers. And using them in the wrong context can actually damage your performance in the IELTS speaking test as it will come across as rehearsed and unnatural.

Watch this short video to see how you can use a couple of common idioms related to describing your feelings.

If you would like to learn how to use more idioms in your speech, sign up for an IELTS speaking course and practice mock interviews with a native English-speaking tutor who can give you great tips on how to use colloquial and idiomatic expressions in a natural way.

I highly recommend iPass IELTS to anybody looking to take this exam (or any other English certificate). Nigel and Jenny were extremely helpful, providing useful advice and feedback during my exam preparation. Not to forget they are also very friendly and kind. What I really liked and appreciated is they assessed perfectly my strengths and weaknesses and this helped me a lot on the actual day of the exam. I knew what to focus on and I scored above the average required by the universities; 7 in writing and 8.5 in speaking!! I didn’t expect that score at all. Overall I marked 7.5 out of 9. I’m very glad I seeked their help and coaching for writing and speaking because it gave me more confidence and they were spot on the marks I could get. Merci guys!
