If you want to understand English very well, you must know lots of figurative language.
Figurative language is language that does not reflect its literal meaning. Our ETO Courses are loaded with figurative language covering many topics.
A few popular examples of figurative speech
I know everyone in this city (actually I know many people but not all of them)
That man is a real snake (the man is immoral, but still a human in reality)
Can you give me a hand (means to give me help, not actually removing your hand)
What figurative language do you know?
Figurative language makes you sound more like a native speaker. Please feel free to share some other figurative language in our comment box.
