Английски идиоми с цветове

Идиомите са устойчиви словосъчетания, които се използват за да се изрази образно една мисъл. Има ги във всички езици и едва ли някой се замисля, когато ги използва на родния си език. Изучаващите чужди езици понякога ги намират трудни за разбиране и това не е изненадващо, защото се формират в рамките на конкретната култура и общество и значението не е изградено от значенията на съставящите ги думи. Но именно идиомите правят речта по-интересна и жива.
