Accidentally on Purpose – Idiom of the Day for IELTS Speaking

Meaning:

If you do something accidentally on purpose, you intend to do it but you pretend that it was an accident

Example:

  • I accidentally on purpose erased my teacher’s email address, so I couldn’t contact her again.
  • If I,accidentally on purpose, forget to bring her address with us, we won’t be able to visit her after all.

Note about Idioms in IELTS

You should be really careful when using idioms in your IELTS speaking test. You can only be sure that you are using an idiom correctly if you have seen or heard it used in context. If you’ve only seen the idiom on a list, don’t use it because it can make your speech forced and unnatural.

What we are trying to do in this category (Idiom of the Day for IELTS Speaking) is to teach idioms specifically for using on your IELTS Speaking test.
