Powered by RedCircle

In this episode of The A to Z English Podcast, Jack describes three idioms which include the verb “go.”

Go the extra mile: This idiom means to put in additional effort or do more than what is expected in order to achieve a goal or provide exceptional service. For example, “She always goes the extra mile to make her customers happy.”

Go out on a limb: This idiom means to take a risk or put oneself in a vulnerable position by making a bold or unsupported statement or decision. It implies taking a chance despite uncertainty. For example, “I’m willing to go out on a limb and invest in this startup because I believe in its potential.”

Go down in flames: This idiom means to fail spectacularly or experience a complete and embarrassing failure in a particular endeavor or situation. It often implies that the failure is visible and dramatic. For example, “Their attempt to launch a new product went down in flames when it didn’t work as expected, and the whole presentation was a disaster.”
