«I hear that the only reason Johnny got into college was because his dad pulled some strings with the president of the university.»
«I actually know a few people who work at the restaurant, so I'll see if I can pull a few strings and get you a table».
«You wait and see, he's going to start pulling strings to get this police investigation quashed».

It's a new video time!
In fact, not so many American idiomatic expressions are used in formal English — but these 15 idioms are a real treasure! https://youtu.be/-YYJCk76nTM

Even though it's more popular in Australia than in other countries, the idiom is still pretty interesting:
— adjective (sometimes hyphenated): very busy; preoccupied with many different things at once.
«Sorry I couldn't make it to lunch today, I've been flat chat with the kids all day.»
— adverb (sometimes hyphenated): at the greatest possible speed, efficiency, or power.
«The whole team is working flat-chat to get this project finished and perfect.»

We really like idioms and fun videos, руку is a combination of both.

A blogger explains English idioms he's never heard before. How many of them are familiar to you? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4kkMG4Zh4I

«I love chatting up tourists visiting our city, it gives you such diverse and interesting perspectives!»

However, you should be careful as there is also another meaning:
To engage in flirtatious conversation with someone, usually in pursuit of romantic or sexual purposes.
«I was chatting up this cute guy at the bar last night and managed to get his phone number! I hate when people chat me up in bars. I just want to have a nice time out with my friends!»

Hey, guys!

Our channel remained silent for a while. The reason for this nonsense is that we were preparing some major changes here. The announcement is coming, yet here is the beginning.

Let's begin with our chat@violachat. Yep, we do have a chat with somewhat 600 thousand messages sent that is featured by Combot as one of the most active Telegram chats in English.

We are proud of the chat but we need to advance. We need topics for conversations, we need moderators and mentors. If you ever wanted to become an admin in our chat — don't hesitate to write @tonyprots with a #ViolaAdmin tag.

We expect a brief story from each of the candidates: who are you, what is your experience of studying English, why on Earth you started learning it and still carry on, what exams have you passed and finally, why on Earth you wish to become an admin.

We expect you to be a patient, outgoing and responsible person. We expect it to be a lot of fun.

Join @violachat and stay hungry, updates are coming.

"Is the glass half empty or half full?" is a common expression, a proverbial phrase, generally used rhetorically to indicate that a particular situation could be a cause for optimism (half full) or pessimism (half empty).
