You probably already know that an idiom is a group of words whose meaning is different from the individual words if you looked them up separately in the dictionary. That's why it helps to see examples of idioms. It's also a great idea to try to practice creating sample sentences yourself. You can do that in the comments section and I will correct your example if needed.
