In this lesson you will learn about the idiom ‘all ears’ and how to use it in your conversations.

Explanation

Ben: Let’s learn about the idiom ‘all ears’.

Lucy: That’s great. I’m interested in idioms. “All ears” means listening to something very carefully, right?

Ben: That’s correct. When we are very eager to listen to something or somebody, we can use the idiom ‘all ears’.

Lucy: Alright! So, ‘all ears’ means listening to something very attentively.

Ben: Correct. Let me give you an example: ‘We were all ears when the news was on.’

Lucy: Good! So when somebody is extremely interested in listening to something, we can say the person is ‘all ears’.

Ben: Yes. The professor asked the students to be all ears because he was explaining them a complex theory.

Lucy: Well, I have some news for you, too.

Ben: Hmm...Hurry up and tell me. I’m all ears!

Lucy: The end-of-term results will be out today.

Ben: Really?! I’ll check my result when I get home.

Lucy: Okay. Then let’s listen to some conversations first.

Ben: Alright!

Sarah Is Upset.

Mark: Listen Sarah, are you still upset with me?

Sarah: I don’t want to talk about it.

Mark: Sarah, please listen to me.

Sarah: Yeah! Go on, I’m all ears!

Lucky Lucy.

Sarah: Lucy, there’s good news for you about the lucky draw!

Lucy: Huh?! Tell me quick, Sarah. I’m all ears.

Sarah: You won a cooking pan!

Lucy: Oh, I’m so happy! You know what? I was thinking about buying one!

Bad News.

Ben: Mark, did you hear about the explosion on Maple Street?

Mark: No! Tell me! I’m all ears.

Ben: Apparently, a gas leak caused a house to explode. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Mark: Wow, that was both good and bad news.
