What is an idiom? An idiom is two or more words with a special meaning.
Idioms are difficult, because often you can’t find them in a dictionary. For example, “to have a blast” is an idiom. What does it mean? You probably know “have”, and you may know “blast” (which means “an explosion or a bomb”)… but what does the the phrase “to have a blast” mean?
Actually it means “to have a lot of fun; to enjoy a lot”
Example: I finally tried bungee jumping, and I had a blast.
