Hi, Some "Heart" expressions are also in common between English and Farsi. That is, they are translated directly as we can call them calque translation. Here are "Heart" examples; - in the heart of night - to lose heart - to ravish one's heart - to break one's heart - to take to heart - tender-hearted - to have a kind heart - in the heart of a city - black hearted - stone-hearted - hard-hearted All the best

Hi, I have forgotten to mention " look at sm/sth". That means to judge by the appearance of sb/sth; To look at him you would never think he was nearly fifty.

Hi crawford, Let me write with new "look expressions": I was looking to add more "looks" to not look back, I hope this activity looks good in the near future. If someone looks you up and down, don't loose your cool. It dosen't look bad for you. You can gain more experience. are these sentences ok?

Hello,Crawford If you dont mind,I'd like to add more expressions on "Look". - be just looking; used in a shop/store to say that you are not ready to buy sth. "Can I help you?" "I'm just looking", thank you. - be looking to do sth; to try to find ways of doing sth. The government is looking to reduce inflation. -look bad/not look good to be considered bad behaviour or bad manners; It looks bad not going to your own brother's wedding. -look bad (for sb); to show that sth bad might happen. Things are looking bad for Alice, I'm afraid. -look good to show success or that sth good might happen. This year sales figures are looking good. - look sb up and down; look at sb in a careful or critical way. -never/not look back; to become more and more successful.
