Without even realizing it, we all speak in code—by
frequently using idioms. Where do they all come from? For starters, why does
“in a pickle” mean to be in a quandary or in a difficult position? Even though
many idioms don’t make much sense literally, they are very useful to convey our
thoughts and feelings. You will meet captivating people and sometimes go to unexpected
places as we explore the stories behind common idioms. This course features
many visuals to bring the stories to life.
