Have you every done something embarrassing? Maybe you went to a party and saw someone you’ve met before, but couldn’t remember their name. That happens to me a lot. Or maybe you tried to say something in another language, but you said the wrong thing and everyone laughed. (That’s happened to me too!) Well, here is an idiom that you can use in this situation:
To put one’s foot in one’s mouth
Here are some examples on how to use this common English idiom:
- I put my foot in my mouth when I forgot Bob’s wife’s name.
- Jack put his foot in his mouth at the party. Why did he get so drunk?
- It’s easy to put your foot in your mouth when you practice a new language.
