ENGLISH EXPRESSIONS: "JUMP IN AT THE DEEP END"
When you are learning a language it is often a good idea just to "jump in at the deep end". This expression is connected to the idea of a swimming pool where there is a shallow end and a deep end! If you jump in at the deep end and you can't swim then you need to learn very quickly! The meaning of "jumping in at the deep end" is that you start something that is new or difficult and you have little previous experience of that activity.
So, when you are learning English it is often good to jump in at the deep end because this can really help you overcome your fear and push you quickly forward!!
Hope that helps!
