EXPRESSIONS WITH SPRING (SPRING A TRAP)

Welcome back, everyone!

Today we are continuing with our Spring Expressions by looking at the idiom: TO SPRING A TRAP

Definition: to capture someone or something (such as an animal or criminal) with a trap. To make someone say or do something by tricking them.

Example 1: The police sprung a trap on the drug dealers. 

Example 2: We caught the thieves when we left a window open and they entered our house. In reality, we had sprung our trap on them. We were expecting them.

That's all for today's lesson. Have an excellent day!
