Idiom of the week!

That's right! It's that time again! This weeks idiom is (Barking up the wrong tree)!

Do you like dogs? Well, if you have ever been around them, you would know that they tend to bark from time to time. Also, some dogs like to chase cats or squirrels up trees. That's where this fun idiom comes from.

For example: A dog sees a squirrel and chases it up tree, but in the park or forest, there are many trees. The squirrel was clever and fast and ran up a tree, so the dog didn't see which tree it went up to and chose a tree it thought the squirrel climbed. Thus, the dog would be barking up the wrong tree.

In essence: Doing something that won't give you the results you want.
For example: Asking your older brother for some of his Halloween candy, but your sister tells you, "you are barking up the wrong tree," he never shares with anyone.

Fun facts and awesome news!

Hey, it's another great day to learn and hear some...(Fun facts and awesome news)!

So Global news has been pretty distressing as of late, especially in America!

You might have heard, Impeachment. What's that? So today, let's take a look at the history and the meaning of this very powerful word.

Impeachment in the United States is the process by which a legislature (usually in the form of the lower house) brings charges against a civil officer of government for crimes alleged to have been committed. The federal House of Representatives can impeach federal officials, including the president, and most states' legislatures can impeach state officials, including the governor, in accordance with their respective federal or state constitution.

In essence, if you hold office in an official government position, you can be taken out of office for corruption or behaving seriously badly. If 2/3 of the vote are passed, then you can be removed from office.

Most famous U.S. Presidents to be impeached were Nixon (before being impeached resigned), Clinton (acquitted), Trump (acquitted) and now facing other charges. Wow! There's a lot going on in the last week of Trump's presidency. Let's hope more fiascos do not happen!

It's English name is called meat and vegetables but in my families native language we call it Zaganier (zar-ja-nair). It is very spicy with lots of vegetables and meat. You should try it sometime!

Idiom of the week!

That's right! It's that time again! This weeks idiom is (Clear as mud)!

Mud is the opposite of clear and clean. It is dirty and you can't see through it. That's why, this idiom is sometimes used sarcastically.

The literal meaning is, not easy to understand.

For example: The teacher is usually fun and interesting but, the explanation about physics is as clear as mud. Meaning, I totally didn't understand the lesson.

Good luck and have fun trying this one out on your friends. English is so fun, because there are many ways to express something that could be dull or otherwise boring in a fun and interesting way.
