The best thing to remember new vocabulary better is to repeat it! So that's why I decided to make this list of idioms for people that Julia taught us last time. Below the list you can find an exercise to check your understanding. 

a chatterbox - talks all the time and never stops 

a busybody - always gossips and talks about people

a yes-man - always agrees with other people

a pain in the neck - a bothersome annoying person

a dark horse - a mysterious or shy person who unexpectedly turns out to be the best at something

a black sheep - an odd or disreputable member of a group, especially within a family

a life and soul - a fun person who is in the center of a party

an old hand - is experienced at a certain activity

a whiz kid - a young person who is exceptionally talented or proficient at a given subject 

set in one's ways - unchangeable, inflexible, fixed in one's habits

Now test yourself!
