Idiom Lesson “Get Lost!” From Happy English NYC!

Michael Idioms Leave a Comment

Today’s idiom is both an idiom and slang. When you tell someone to “get lost,” you are telling them to “go away.”

-I’m studying right now. Get lost!
-Lindsey told the reporter to get lost.
-Why don’t you kids go outside for a while and get lost. I want to relax for a while (Mom said to her kids)

There is one more similar expression with the same meaning – “Go fly a kite.” This also means go away, but it is a bit old fashioned English and not really used so much anymore.

Have you wanted to tell someone to get lost recently?
If you know anyone who might be interested in this English language point, why not help them out! Just share this lesson with them. Thanks for studying today!
