Idiom of the Day

“Went to hell in a hand basket”

Have you ever

been working on a project or a plan, and everything fell apart? For example, let’s say you are planning for a birthday party. Perhaps the restaurant made a mistake on your order and it got switched with another customer. On the birthday cake, they wrote the wrong name. More guests showed up than you anticipated. And then it rained. This would be an example where the birthday party “went to hell in a hand basket.”

In short, the idiom means everything goes to ruin rapidly, or the situation becomes a great disaster.

    @Bud very nice! You have a clear voice, and your accent is barely noticeable.

    @Goal0321 very good reading. Keep working on making your accent less noticeable, but otherwise you are doing well.

    @Saki very good. I can understand what you are saying. Continue to work on removing your accent just a little bit. Otherwise you are doing well.

    @Eri very nice. 😊 My only advice for you is to make sure you include the words “a, an, the.” Sometimes you left them out. Without them, your sentences will seem slightly incomplete.

    @mustapha I am sorry, I could not really hear your message well. There seemed to be static interfering with the voice message. It started out strong though!

    @Judy fantastic. 😊 It was very clear to understand you. Your accent was there of course, but it wasn’t very strong. Good job.

    Hi scott! Does "It rained" means feel blue or so many people showed up like raining?

    @Scott Cecil Allen you are welcome.really you point out my mistake ,l stucked with the word ruin, because it's the same in french with different pronunciation.
