Hello. As usual, every week I have a little phrase to help you improve your English. In this week’s ‘edition’ of A phrase a week I’d like to introduce two phrases containing the word smart. You’re probably familiar with one meaning of this word, i.e. clever, intelligent. For example, Tim’s really smart or The smart kids get good grades and go off to college. However, ‘smart’ can also mean well-dressed, wearing neat attractive clothes, having a tidy appearance. For example, Tom looks really smart in his new grey suit or Do you like wearing smart clothes? You can make it into an adverb in combination with the adjective ‘dressed’ – e.g. smartly dressed. Next time, try using it yourself in an appropriate context.
That’s all from me now. Have a good week.
