Idiom of the week – Have someone’s ear

Posted by englishlessons on February 22, 2012

Definition:

have access to and influence with someone

Examples:

Do you think he’s still influential at the company? Does he still have the President’s ear?
She bragged that she had the CEO’s ear and could help me get a job there.

Picture it:

If you have someone’s ear, you are very close to that person, close enough to whisper into her/his ear.
