Anthony, unable to contain his uneasiness, wrestles with thoughts about his examination. Pansy enters his room to bid good nights, asks Anthony, ‘Are you all right, Anthony? You seem jittery.’
He mulls, hesitating before he answers. ‘Ah, my exam begins tomorrow, so I feel anxious!’
Do you know the idiom that suits Anthony’s situation right now? Guess the emoji below!
Can you believe it if we tell you that our students are learning this idiom at the tender age of 3 years old? Children are actually expected to learn idioms in primary school but in Q-dees, we believe that they are able to learn it at a young age when being taught with the correct method.
With our teaching methodology children are able to grasp both the literal and figurative meaning of the idioms that are being taught.
Here is how our Q-dees kids learn idioms in school through our technology-incorporated multimedia programmes. Press play to watch the video!

Our Research & Development team has developed a programme that ensures a fun and interactive learning environment. Idioms made easy with Q-dees Link & Think Reading Series! Our reading series consist of different components including:
- Eager Reader Theatre that lets children listen to the stories from the multimedia
- Eager Reader Reading for children to read the story using the correct pronunciation
- Dramatic Reading to emphasise key expressions used in the story
- Linker Thinker to evaluate children’s understanding of the lesson
- New Word Explorer to test word vocalisation in an interesting manner
- Link & Think Rhapsody that expresses idioms through fun songs
So don’t be too surprised if your child starts saying that they have ants in their pants!
We will be posting an emoji challenge every month on our Official Q-dees Worldwide Facebook page. You can tune in for our posts and see if you know your idioms!
