A Breath of Fresh Air

Welcome to English in a Minute, where we teach you all about idioms in American English. Imagine you are standing outside after a rain storm, and you tale a deep breath. Its new, fresh, and it smells good. But what does this have to do with American English? A: I love the new baseball coach. He's got great ideas for making us better players.
B: He does. He's like a breath of fresh air for the team.
"A breath of fresh air" means something new. It's a nice change from the way things used to be. You can use this phrase to describe an event, a place, or even a person. And you can use this phrase in any situation. And that's English in a Minute.
