Idiom of the Week — “do over”

Everybody makes mistakes.  It’s normal.  Unfortunately, we don’t always have the opportunity to do all our mistakes over.  At a school like EC Miami, students are always given opportunities to do something over if they make a mistake.  Only by doing it over are students able to learn from their mistakes, so that they don’t repeat them.

Imagine all the times you said something embarassing in front of a group of people (in English or in your native language) – you’d certainly like the chance to do it over, wouldn’t you?

Of course, to do something over simply means to do something again in order to correct a mistake.  One more idiom for your collection!  These idioms and more will be useful if you take the TOEFL test in Miami!
