Hello everybody! Welcome back to another issue of EEC. This week’s word is shake and we’ll be checking out all the common uses of it. I’m sure you know that we can have a milkshake and that we can shake hands, but there are many more interesting phrases. For example, we can shake on an arrangement or shake our heads at something. Take a look below for more phrases!
