As kids, people spend every day for years in school, and even afterward, they still need to learn new things—whether it’s how to speak another language or how to play a difficult video game.

So it is not surprising that we have numerous idioms relating to school and learning. What does it mean, for example, if we hit the books? Are we angry with our books? And do you want your children to be teacher’s pets or class clowns?

Learn these and other studious phrases in Idioms: Study—Hit the Books.
