They can be used to enrich vocabulary for university English, or for the TOEFL or IELTS writing and speaking exams. The video also explains the background to the list of idioms, which come from a study by Julia Miller of The University of Adelaide.

Yt As always, you can also catch the video on Youku if you are somewhere where YouTube is not available.
