I.  Introduction
As an English learner, we study English everyday; learning its literary works, grammatical functions, use them and so on. Sometimes, we come cross  some sentences that we can’t understand, such as, “There is a black sheep” or “Don’t be a bad apple”, “go over my head” , “Don’t put your problems at my doorstep”, “just bear with me”, “heap coal of fire on one’s head” etc. Of course we can comprehend the meaning of every single word. Why did we meet such a difficulty to understand them? So they represent native English idioms! How can we understand the phrases meaning? “There is a  black sheep”(害群之马), “go over my head”(无法理解)(乔恩(Choong,G,G.) 2003.2),“Don’t put your problems at my doorstep”(归咎于我)(卢思源,2006,1.  p290) ,“just bear with me”(容忍我) , “heap coal of fire on one’s head”(以德抱怨).In fact English idioms are本论文英语论文网www.51lunwen.org整理提供 not strange to us in our study and daily life, we can often mention or use them with which we are familiar .Idioms are fixed phrases that go through the test of history and cannot be treated separately, they are a kind of language that Britain and America use to express their ideas. An English idiom is a group of words with a special meaning different from the meaning of its constituent words. Most of these idiomatic expressions are phrases of two or more words that function as a unit of meaning and must be learned as a whole.
In English-speaking countries, idioms are heard and read everywhere from debates to everyday conversations .A good mastery of idioms becomes a significant symbol of a person’s command of the language. However, because of a low level of linguistic competence in the target language, people who learn English as a second language are at a distinct disadvantage in understanding English idioms. We must know the origins of English idioms so that we can learn English well.
Idioms as a special form of language carried a large amount of cultural information, such as history, geography, religion, custom, nationality, psychology, thought pattern and so on, and therefore are closely related to culture. They are the heritage of history and the product of cultural evolvement. General speaking, English idioms came from society, culture and history; they included in everything and related to our society’s life and played an important role in culture. In this paper, I’m going to show the sources of English idioms, and then make a contrast between Chinese and English idioms, finding their differences and similarities in culture. In this way, we can easily study and understand English idioms for successful communication. To sum up, it is important to study English idioms, it is also necessary.
II. The sources
A.  Idioms from living circumstance
Language is a reflection of one country’s cultural background. The natural environment including geographical position, climate, and ecological condition is something that plays contributory role in the formation of language. Certainly, their special way of living, thinking and behaving is formed as a side-product of their relationship with the environment.
Idioms are closely related to people’s labor and life, people in particular culture need words to name and explain objects in their culture. Because Britain is an island country, people who live along seacoast and whose livelihood is dependent on the sea will have idioms about water, sailing, island and fish.
