FLUENTRUSSIA. gets you actually speaking English and not just studying English.
Not the idioms your English teacher from your schooldays taught you. Learn up to date slang and idioms as actually used today in the U.K. and U.S. Idioms are fun and useful expressions that usually cannot be understood by defining the separate words. Most idioms don’t seem to make any sense because their origins are so old.
Some of them come from ancient literature or even classic films. Learning the background of idioms can help you to remember them. Slang, on the other hand, is a kind of language consisting of very informal words and phrases. Slang is more common in speech than in writing. Slang words are often used in a particular context or by a particular group of people.
