Head Idioms - BBC Learning English "The Teacher"



It's like banging your head against a brick wall.
(Это все равно, что прошибать лбом стену.)

He's got his head in the clouds.
(Он витает в облаках.)

An old head on young shoulders.
(Мудр не по годам.)

Have you met my younger brother?
Now, I know what you’re thinking -you're thinking “you silly man, that’s not his younger brother. That's an old man”.
But you’re wrong. He’s got an old head on young shoulders.
In English, if someone seems older than they are or if they talk and think like an older person, we can say “he’s got an old head on young shoulders.”
["Ladies, ladies, please …"]

Unlike me, I’ve got a young head on old shoulders.
