Take forever

 

Hello-hello! Today I’m gonna tell you about again a very popular idiom when ‘Something takes forever’.

So when you want to say that something takes very very long time, of course you can say ‘Oh my God! It takes forever!’

For example you’re sitting in a restaurant and you are so hungry. And you are waiting and waiting and waiting for your salad. And you are calling the waiter over and you say ‘Come on! Why is it taking forever to cook my salad?’

Or when you’re at work trying to finish your report as soon as you can, but you can’t. And your boss comes over to you and he says ‘Why is it taking forever to finish this report? It should have been finished yesterday!’

I hope you understand what it means, I hope you’re gonna use it in your speech. Bye-bye!
