Have you ever gotten so distracted that you forgot to do something very important? Have you ever wondered...
Being able to talk naturally and idiomatically about money is a useful skill. In today’s Catch Word episode, we explain a couple useful terms for talking about small amounts of money: peanuts and chump change.
Did you know that peanuts aren’t actually nuts? Despite having the word “nut” in their name, a peanut is a type of pea that grows underground. While this might be surprising, it’s not rare. Many of the foods referred to as nuts in English aren’t technically nuts, such as almonds, pistachios, cashews, horse chestnuts, and pine nuts.
