For example, let’s look at the idiom, “get the ball rolling.” To start a game like bowling or billiards, you roll the ball. So this idiom gives us the idea we are starting something. When we say, “Let’s get the ball rolling,” we mean, let’s begin. You can use this idiom to begin a meeting, a class, or even a road trip. Why learn idioms?
