English Idioms and Expressions - Learn English with Steve Ford - Peppy 27

Hello! Hello! Hello! Leda(my wife) and I filmed this video here in Vancouver on Saturday and here it is: a brand new lesson on English idioms and expressions.This video was shot on location at Vancouver tourist attraction Capilano Suspension Bridge. There are lots of fun and useful idioms and expressions.

Outdoor location for our lesson: Capilano Suspension Bridge

We got some great sunny weather to shoot our lesson. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge crossing the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The current bridge is 140 metres (460 ft) long and 70 metres (230 ft) above the river. It is part of a private facility, with an admission fee, and draws over 800,000 visitors a year. The bridge has been featured as a setting in episodes of several television series, including MacGyver, Sliders, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven, and Psych. I was quite inspired to make this lesson and there are some golden idioms and expressions that are commonly used by native speakers of English.

Will there be "Steve in Vancouver Part 2"?

I had enough material left over to go over a grammar topic I have always wanted to teach and yes it is part of the master film footage we shot in Capilano Park. I also have some additional expressions and vocabulary left over from part 1. So stay tuned for part 2.


I worked all Sunday and Monday recording and mixing: electric and classical guitar, bass and piano. I improvised the melody on my classical guitar and had originally wanted to sing it, but I changed my mind at the last minute.

So everyone, I hope you love this lesson since I sure did. Feel free to try your luck at the hangman quiz after you watch the video!
