Hello everyone!
Today's idiom is: up in arms.
Up in arms.
Alright, so let's talk about what this meaning might be.
Alright, so we have 'up' and 'arms'. Up in arms, okay?
What's this gesture usually mean?
Maybe, 'I don't know.'
Okay, so up in arms: I don't know.
Alright, so let's listen to some examples and think about 'up in arms'.
How's your daughter doing in school?
Not good! Her grade has dropped and I'm up in arms about that!
So, her daughter's grades dropped.
Maybe she's angry.
She doesn't know what to do to help her daughter's grades go back up. She's up in arms.
Okay, second example:
I just got into an accident. I'm up in arms, what should I do?
Calm down, just call the police first.
Okay, so she had an accident. Maybe she's scared. She doesn't know what to do. She's up in arms.
Okay, so 'up in arms' means to be unsure of what to do in a situation.
And usually the situation is scary or makes you angry, so you're very emotional and you don't know what to do.
So, very up in arms and very scared or angry, okay?
So, next time you have a situation that makes you confused, angry or scared and you don't know what to do,
you can say you're up in arms about the situation and maybe someone will help you.
Alright, that's all for today. See you next time!
