🇬🇧🇬🇧 English idiom time!! 🇬🇧🇬🇧

"beating around the bush"


"let's not beat around the bush. I know you and Peter and dating."

we can use " to beat around the bush " when we want to express that someone is avoiding talking about something that is important:

"Will you please stop beating about the bush and get to the point?"

"When I asked George whether he knew who had taken the files from my desk, he started beating around the bush and refused to give me a direct answer."

"Don’t beat around the bush and tell me frankly what you think of my proposition.

Now it's your turn! try writing your own sentences using this expression and I'll correct all grammar errors :)
