Idiom of the Week — “Take a break”


After a long week of academic English, students can certainly be tired.  Exhausted, even.  It’s the perfect opportunity for them to take a break!  Students take short breaks during the day between classes, as well.  But, considering this is a long weekend, they may be taking a break by leaving town for the weekend.  Perhaps they will take a break on the beach (Memorial Day weekend is considered to be the start of the summer vacation season!).

Of course, to take a break is to rest and relax by stopping work.  Go ahead, take a break.  You’ve earned it.
