5 Green Idioms
Hello everyone! And welcome back to English with Lucy In this video we are going to be celebrating a very important day, especially in the Irish calendar Yes, St. Patrick’s day will be celebrated on the seventeenth of march.
So I’ve teamed up with the guys from lingoda They have a fantastic blog now which has lots of articles relating to specific events, days, seasons So head over to that blog, the link is in the description box and you can read lots more about St. Patrick’s day, vocabulary used, language, the history; should be very interesting So today I am going to tell you a little bit about St. Patrick’s Day, how it’s celebrated. And then I’m going to give you some idioms.
And because the colour used to celebrate is the colour green. I am going to give you idioms related to the color green.
So, for most people St. Patrick’s Day is a day for celebrating everything to do with Irish culture which normally involves going to the pub and drinking lots of beer or whiskey and dressing up as leprechaun and shamrocks.
If you want to find out what those are, check out the blogpost And I must say I have joined in in those festivities I do like a pint of Guinness every now and again However, it actually has much more cultural importance than that In reality St. Patrick’s Day celebrates the life of Saint Patrick, who would have guessed it? Now, St Patrick’s Day is celebrated on the seventeenth of March because it is believed to be the date he died in around four hundred and sixty A.D Now, St. Patrick’s day is known for drinking because it actually falls within Lent And that’s a period of time where there are restrictions on food and drink So the Irish people were given an exception, they were allowed to drink and feast on St. Patrick’s Day.
That’s why it’s associated with excess Nowadays is celebrated all over the world, especially in America they love it over there and people listen to Irish music, they drink Irish alcohol and drinks, they eat Irish food And they sometimes talk with an Irish accent Ireland. That’s the best I can do Oh! and very importantly they wear green, people wear green.
So now, to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day I’m going to talk to you about some idioms that are related to the color green So the first idiom is: To be green with envy To be green with envy So, I’m going to give an example of how I would use this idiom in conversation and I want you to guess what it means Aftewards I will say the definition My neighbor has a gorgeous new pug puppy and I am green with envy My neighbor has a gorgeous new pug puppy and I am green with envy Yep, so I could say My neighbor has a gorgeous new pug puppy and I am really jealous To be green with envy means to be really jealous, really envious of what somebody else has So the next one is: to have a green thumb And I would say in the summer months my dad grows amazing food for us all No, he really, really does.
We have fresh tomatoes, potatoes, beans, fruits, everything Now, all the vegetables taste delicious because he has a green thumb The vegetables taste delicious because he has a green thumb So, if somebody has a green thumb it means that they have a real talent to for growing things, for growing plants The next one: To be green around the gills Gills are slits here that fish use to breathe So if you are green around the gills, what do you think that means?
I’ll give you an example I sent Sharon home from work today because she looked a bit green around the gills I sent Sharon home from work today because she looked a bit green around the gills If somebody is green around the gills it means they look ill or they look unwell. So poor Sharon looked unwell Now, the fourth idiom is: to give the green light If I give something the green light, what am I– What am I doing? So, say my boss gave me the green light to start my new campaign.
My boss gave me the green light to start my new campaign If you someone the green light it means you give them permission to start a new project It’s a useful one for the work place Now the final idiom, idiom number five, is: to go green So if I say: I’ve decided to go green, from now on I am going to walk to work I’ve decided to go green, from now on I am going to walk to work So, to go green means to make a conscious life style change in order to be more environmentally friendly So walking to work is more environmentally friendly than driving to work Right guys, that’s it for today’s lesson
