Do you use idioms at work?

If you are a native speaker and work with non-native speakers, I suggest developing awareness of when you are using an idiom. I’m not saying don’t use them but make sure they are understood. And if you are a non-native speaker, remember that it is fine and usual to use idioms at work. With an idiom, you can say a lot with a few words. Just make sure you are using acceptable work idioms.

Today I look at 3 animal idioms:

  • Eat like a pig
  • Eat like a horse
  • Bigger fish to fry
