Welcome to English in a Minute.

What would you think if you heard someone say: I am getting cold feet. Did she forget to put on her shoes? Is she standing in snow? Let's listen and see whether we can figure this out.

Voice One: Are you going to enter the photo contest?

Voice Two: I don't know.

Voice One: Oh, you should. You are so talented. Your pictures are beautiful!

Voice Two: You're just being nice. But I am getting cold feet. I don't know if I am good enough.

If you say "I am getting cold feet," it means that you are afraid or uncomfortable about doing something.

For example, people say a person is getting cold feet if he or she is supposed to get married, but calls off or cancels the wedding. This is a very common, informal phrase.

And that's English in a Minute.
