We’re back with another Catch Word episode! In this episode, Andrew and Kassy teach you some idiomatic expressions or phrases to use when talking about something that improves or gets better. Tune in to improve your English listening skills by leaps and bounds!

Catch Word is a great series that focuses on key vocabulary and phrases used in all sorts of common everyday English conversations. While this episode focuses on phrases that you might use when talking about making progress, improving, or getting better at something, it is also chock-full of other useful expressions highlighted in the study guide.

Fun facts

There are thousands of books and articles out in the world telling people how to improve their mental health, sleep patterns, exercise habits, study habits, financial literacy, and much more. What’s interesting is that these articles and books all say the exact same thing to a certain degree. Most self-improvement or self-help books tend to agree that the #1 way to make significant improvements in anything you set out to achieve is to make small, concise goals and then a routine or plan to achieve those goals, and to consistently execute that plan each and every day.

Expressions included in the study guide

  • By leaps and bounds
  • To bomb [something]
  • Out and about
  • On the up and up
  • To be in the moment
  • To branch off
