Welcome to a new episode from perfect English podcast. Today we’re going to talk about some idiomatic expressions that have to do with learning from experiences. Now let’s start with the first situation. If something bad has happened, but you decide to learn from it instead of being upset by it, you can say I’ve decided to put it down to experience. So the idiom is to put it down to experience. If you don’t know what your position is or what your situation is with someone, and it is worrying you, you can say I just want to know where I stand, that’s all. So know where I stand is the idiomatic expression. If something happens or someone says something that makes You think very seriously about it, you can say, the events or your suggestions have certainly given me food for thought. If something bad happens to you, and you decide you will never let it happen again, you can say I’ve learned my lesson. If someone does something stupid, which affects them in a way that they’ll never want to do it again, you can say that will teach him or her a lesson. If someone finally becomes aware of a fact. And we use this usually with unpleasant facts, we can say, I think he or she’s got the message. If you tell the true facts to someone who has believed a different set of facts up to that moment, you can say, I just want to set or put the record straight. And that’s all the idiomatic expressions we have for one day. Thank you very much. I’ll see you in the next episode. I hope you have learned a lot today and I’m pretty sure sure that your English is a step closer to perfect English. This was your host Danny. Don’t forget to subscribe. I’ll see you next time.
