Bienvenue dans le module d'anglais des affaires pour la leçon d'aujourd'hui sur idiomes de l'anglais des affaires related to food.
Food is an important part of life and culture. And even when we’re not eating, or talking about food, it slips into our conversation in the form of idioms. What do I mean when I say “idiom?” I mean special expressions where one thing actually means another. Par exemple, we have the idiom “to go bananas,” which has nothing at all to do with bananas. It means “to go crazy.”
English has idioms that come from specific foods, like bananas, butter, bacon, and bread. Nous avons aussi Idiomes anglais that come from meals or use the word “food” itself. Some of these idioms describe people and activities, while others describe situations, relationships, and ideas. Learning how to use these idioms can really help “spice up” your conversation in English.
Dans la leçon d'aujourd'hui, we’ll hear a conversation among three coworkers: Jessie, Luke, and Ben. They are discussing their general work situation and Jessie’s idea to start her own company. Au cours de leur discussion, they use many useful idioms related to food.
