How common are idioms?

By Dr Julian Northbrook

Someone told one of my members that the idiom “raining cats and dogs” is “old and nobody says that any more.”

… but is this really true?

I did some research, and the answer is no… BUT with an important “but” you need to keep in mind if you want to use idioms naturally.

The problem is, most people approach learning things like this wrong.
