Winning English - Ep076 - Aphorisms, proverbs, adages, and more

July 22, 2021

Winning English - helping your English shine through the use of idioms, slang, and cultural references! 

Every culture has a shared, common wisdom, and this wisdom is often transmitted through the generations using short statements that communicate that wisdom or truth and those moral values. These short statements go by many names - aphorisms, proverbs, adages, and so on. Any native English speaker will know most of these, and now you will start learning them, as well!

This is the podcast version of the Winning English YouTube video and newsletter. Please subscribe to those services, as well - especially the newsletter, where I include a transcript of this episode, additional content, and links.

Why Winning English?

Native speakers of any language use sayings and slang words all the time in business and everyday speech, but the meaning isn't always clear. Winning English is the solution!

If you are an intermediate to advanced English learner, Winning English helps you with these confusing parts of speech. Improve your comprehension of native English and start to sound like a native speaker, as well!

Thanks for your interest. Good luck with your learning, and talk soon!
