    Hello, I'm currently studying french GCSE and am in the process of preparing for my writing assesment. I've been told by my teacher to include more idioms in my work to achieve a higher grade but i am unable to find any.

    Could anyone help me with some related to the topic of holidays or a disastrous holiday? Thankyou.

    Garder la tête froide - means to keep one's cool. Perhaps you could say something along the lines of "I had to keep my cool when we walked into the hotel despite it's lack of facilities"

    Coûter les yeux de latête - to cost an arm and a leg. Perhaps you could say: Despite costing an arm and a leg, the hotel lacked basic facilities.

    être bouche bée - to be speechless. - I was speechless at the cost of the food.

    manger sur le pouce - to get a bite to eat. Perhaps, Thanks to the lack of facilities at the hotel, we grabbed a bite to eat at the local restaurant.

    I think you'd just conjugate the verb: je mange
