Dear Teachers,

1. You did the deed. Now it's time for you to step up to the plate and be a Dad.

- What does "step up yo the plate" mean?

2. I'm very pro-life and that would influence anything that I told you.

- What does "pro-life" mean?

3. By keeping busy, the two weeks will fly by in no time.

- "will fly by in no time" means "will fly by very fast", right?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

Stevenukd.

I agree with Clive.

Members may ask whatever questions they want to ask in these forums.

(Moreover, you can find some very dodgy explanations on Wiki, etc.)

BTW, you're experienced enough now to search yourself for your idioms.

Search Yahoo with:
"step up to the plate" dictionary
"pro-life" dictionary
or
"step up to the plate" idiom
(quotation marks are important to group up words)

You should only post here those which you really can't find by yourself.
That would be more productive, IMO. You must learn to become more independent in your study.

Just my 2 cents.

Hi,

Yes, it's a good idea to try to do some research by yourself.

However, if you can't find an explanation, or if you can't understand the explanation that you find, please don't hesitate to post your questions here.

Best wishes, Clive
