Hey guys it’s Michael here from Happy English and I help people speak English better.

Can you believe it’s almost the end of the year? Time certainly flies, especially this crazy year. I’ve heard a lot of people are tired of dealing with the hassles brought on by the pandemic, but you know, it’s not over yet, so keep those masks up. And if you live in a place where it is cold now, that mask will help you stay warm.

Speaking of staying warm, for today’s English lesson, let’s have a look at eight idioms that you’ll hear people use in the winter. Are you ready? Let’s get the ball rolling!

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details.
