Idioms English Idioms and Expressions that Include Blue

I’m gradually getting better at animating and putting all the bits together, but still need to do some work on editing audio files (sorry about this, but I know that I’ll finally get it right ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Anyway, I hope you find the video useful. You can also do a short quiz after watching the video.
