"I am pleased to report to you that what I have learned here really works. The nice thing about an idiom is that you do not have to explain your thought at length. This means that if you have no knowledge about an idiom, you will never understand what the speaker is talking about. In that sense you have made my life here a little easier. Thanks a lot!"
