in good taste
the discussion became heated
to set the tone
to lower one's voice
to calm down
put your scarf on
love thy neighbour
he/she's the spitting image of you!
did you find what you wanted?
stop your nonsense!
in a monotone
drink all your milk
I agree with you
don't make things worse for yourself
your story seems likely
phone before you leave
your future is at stake
you can kiss your money goodbye
your hat isn't very nice
let your brother have the toy
I know what you are up to
it's just like you to do
it's your turn to cook, you won't get out of it
you don't realize how lucky you are!
I can't stand your brother
I saw you in your true colours
it's by far your best novel
stop feeling sorry for yourself!

put your bag in a corner and put your coat on top of it
‘is your report finished?’—‘no, I'm working on it’
he's all smiles to your face but says nasty things about you behind your back
