What is an expression?

An expression is something that we hear in a daily conversion or in an English chat room :D. You do not find these expressions normally in textbooks, but it is very important for us to know to understand the expression.

Let’s get hands-on some of really really common expression.

1) TWENTY FOUR SEVEN

When someone says “twenty-four seven,” what they mean is, because there are 24 hours in a day and 7 days a week, is they mean every minute of every day. So an example is: “You can access this LearnEnglishFunWay.Com 24/7.” What it means is, “You can access LearnEnglishFunWay.Com any minute of any day, all the time.”

3) SICK AND TIRED

You don’t like it; You hate it!! You are fed up angry and bored because something unpleasant has been happening for too long
