Idiom of the Week: “Be All Ears”


Once again Monday is upon us and it is time for this week’s Idiom of the Week. I think that this is one of the funniest idioms that most people use. This week’s idiom is be all ears. It is a rather informal idiom. I try to use this idiom when I am talking about ‘listening’.

I know that this image is not the most attractive; but it is just as informal as the idiom.

The meaning of this idiom is “to be very eager to hear what someone is going to say”

For example; ‘Do you want to hear what happened at the party last night?’ ‘Oh yes, I’m all ears’.
