The bee’s knees – Idioms to describe positive outcomesWorksheet

This web worksheet focuses on idioms that are used to describe positive outcomes. 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.
