Topic: And why Americans/Englishmen in speech do not use an idiom? And in films you do not hear them. What for teachers, since school force to learn them?

Question interesting.
Approximately 15 % of time of lessons leave on these idioms.
99 % from them are forgotten, because even in practice nobody uses them.
Any plot of teachers. smile

The cinema generally acts in film for the inhabitant. And for remaining all it is defined by a circle of contacts.

The Question interesting
It, absolutely not interesting. It is enough to recall a difference between speech and a literary language. If mastery of a language is required at home level, idioms  are not necessary, and not only they. And in the literature everyone comes across.

The American asks Russians why Americans do not use an idiom. Funny smile
Perhaps it not the American idioms. Perhaps Englishmen them talk? Or it 100 years during the lunchtime, and in the curriculum remained.
In my opinion, now it is more useful to study not idioms, and a common cultural context on which native speakers grow. Films, transmissions on a TV set,  on the Internet. Perhaps even books.
For example, I read  "Under a calotte". In one episode the local medical assistant speaks "Well, the doctor of the House at us is not present. It is necessary to rake all". Who does not know, this serial, that badly understands, about what speech.
Or now, for example, I read "the World on Klarksonu". Who these people whom he continually mentions? What it for transmissions? What it for songs? Completely its texts the reader of its column in "understands only Sandi ".

"To give on a muzzle", "to fill up supped" or "to crush a bubble" - quite to itself idioms. Literary speech here not and.
