  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 242. The idiom today is to keep to

  • the straight and narrow. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone keeps

  • to the straight and narrow, he or she behaves in a way to avoid trouble and

  • tries to behave properly or correctly. Basically it means to lead an honest and

  • morally acceptable way of life. Okay. Let's take a look a few of the examples here.

  • Number one. If you want to avoid trouble in your life, you should not take drugs

  • or break the law. You know, so this is someone giving advice. Just keep to the

  • straight and narrow. So this is just the way we might hear it used. Or number

  • two. After Jane's husband got out of jail, he swore to her ... so he made a solemn or

  • serious promise to her, he was a changed man. So he's not the same man he was

  • before. He's a changed man. He changed his ways. He says he will keep to the

  • straight and narrow and be a law-abiding citizen. Remember law-abiding is he will

  • obey the law. He won't be out there breaking the law anymore. He will be a

  • law-abiding citizen. He will stick to the straight and narrow. Okay. Anyway I hope

  • you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
