arg-hammer-chasing-nail-animbg-320x200-urlHello there,

How are you?

Today you are going to learn the English idiom to hit the nail on the head.


It means to do or say something exactly right.

For example:

encouraging teacher

Mark got an A on his First Certificate Exam and his teacher said:

Well done Mark! You hit the nail on the head.

Yes, Mark really nailed it on the exam, and I know you will do so too.

And if I tell you that “you nailed it“, it means that you completed a task successfully or got something right.

Keep on getting ready for the First!
