English Is Not My Mouth part 2

What we speak in vernacular will not make sense in English. The words will be in English but it will be like Greek to English speakers.

Some phrases in vernacular may mean quite a different thing from what comes out at face value. Though they may look like idiomatic expressions, they are not.

Outlined in this quiz are some of them. You just agree or refute the statement. Enjoy the journey with me. Bon voyage.
