In a pickle – Idioms for talking about problemsWorksheet

This web worksheet focuses on idioms which are used to talk about problems and difficulties. Business English is full of colourful expressions such as ‘there is an elephant in the room’, ‘to add fuel to the fire’ and ‘to have an axe to grind’ which serve a communicative purpose that goes beyond the literal meaning of the words. Such idioms create rich mental images and thereby provide effective and concise ways of communicating complex information packages.
