English uses a number of fixed expressions in everyday conversations and writing.

To tell you the truth, I don't enjoy going to parties.
The following quiz provides a number of fixed expressions. Each fixed expression has one or two wrong word(s) in it. Find the word(s), write it(them) down, and then check the answers page to see if you are right. The answers page also provides the fixed expression to be learned at the end of each sentence. To help you integrate these expressions when you speak English, see if you can translate the expressions into your own language. Once you have translated the phrases, think of ways that you would use them in your language and try to translate back into English.
