Do you speak Business? – Touching base

Let’s face it: Without idioms life would be just a cold and sad bunch of grammar rules.

 

Idioms make conversations more natural and genuine, as they build pictures in our mind.

Michael: Hello Anne, this is Michael. I just wanted to return your call.
Anne: Hello! I didn’t mean to hang up on you earlier, I was breaking up.
Micheal: I just wanted to touch base…
