Hey everybody out there,

So you love learning English, isn’t it?

It’s the reason you are here at English Harmony reading all the articles.

Hence, I brought another chapter of “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you learn something new every day about a subject with context and examples, and so will you today.

You know I have been told by almost every single teacher of mine that if you learn idioms, phrases, and expressions, you already have a slight edge on others. Not only do they add value and emphasis to your statements, but also make you sound more natural and fluent.

You can say, learning expressions and phrases are hands-down the fastest way to improve your spoken English and vocabulary.

Did you even realize you have an edge on your friends if you are reading all these articles thoroughly?

Maybe you didn’t.

I guess there won’t be hands-down anyone who would deny it. Would he?

After all, you may have noticed your English vocabulary was getting better day by day as we are heading towards the end of this course.

And don’t you worry, even after this course gets over, there will be articles like this that will always keep coming only for you guys out there, either by me or Robby.

So I hope you would have understood the meanings of expressions we covered in the above context, haven’t you?

Well, if not, here is the vocabulary to acquire-

Vocabulary to Acquire from Context

To have an edge

Meaning: To have an advantage over others.

Example: As he has learned martial arts in the past, he definitely has an edge over John in today’s fight.


Meaning: definitely, without a doubt.


  • He is hands-down one of the most attractive models in our country.
  • Ron is hands-down the winner of today’s competition.

How did you find today’s chapter?

I hope it added some new vocabulary to your arsenal of active vocabulary which will be definitely useful in your daily life.

Make sure you read this article thoroughly and practice it with your own examples so as they will become your second nature.

See you tomorrow with some new topic and vocabulary.

Till then keep learning and improving.
