Word (Idiom) of the week

Seeing as you are probably all quite stressed and busy revising at the moment I thought I’d share an English idiom related to this –

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

This means that everybody needs a certain amount of relaxation, it is not good to work/study all the time.  So make sure you have some rest and relaxation time after your exams!! .The idiom comes from an old English book (about a boy called Jack!).

Good luck with your exams.

    I’m now watching Downton Abbey 1×05 and this expression shows up! XD Between Mary and Matthew’s conversation. And I love this drama. It’s quite awesome haha
