FOR A SONG – An American Idiom Lesson

FOR A SONG
What does the idiom, to get something for a song mean?
When you get something for a song, you are able to buy it for a low or discounted price. The nuance is that instead of paying money for something, I just needed to pay for that with my singing! I got it for a song! (OK, maybe not my singing, but you get the idea!)

  • I got those sneakers for a song at the flea market.
  • In Chinatown in NYC you can get a great meal for a song.
  • You can get the lucky eye charms at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul for a song.

How about you? What have you gotten for a song recently?

Everything Your GRAMMAR BOOK Didn’t Teach You

Yes, your grammar book probably taught you the difference between during and while, but it probably didn’t teach you how we actually use those words in everyday English. This book does!

You’ll also learn how to really use phrases such as:

  • By Friday and Until Friday
  • In the end and At the end
  • I’m bored and I’m boring
  • Even if and Even though
  • Just and Only
  • Much and Many
  • Stop doing it and Stop to do it…and so much more!

You’ll also learn how to use causatives, conditionals, frequency adverbs, modal verbs, articles, and prepositions.
