Idiom of the Week – “Wolf Down”


Last week, you learned about what it is to pig out.  Students that are preparing for an ESOL Test in Miami should also know that another expression that means almost exactly the same thing is wolf down.  Think about how a wolf (or any other animal, really) eats its food: there is nothing slow or methodical about it.  They want to eat, and they want to eat quickly.  So, to wolf down your food means that you are eating very quickly (because you are very hungry).  This is probably a good idiom to know if you are planning to celebrate Thanksgiving this month!
