Idiom: to be down to earth

Means: to be balanced and reasonable

Use: to refer to people's characters

Circumstances: It is often a compliment used when you talk about someone you know

Note: Often used with 'very'. Can be used as an adjective – She's a very down to earth person.

Some examples:

Let's speak to Sally about this. She is very down to earth, so she will give us a good answer.

Tom is not very down to earth. He's always having silly ideas.

Your turn:

Think about some people you know and complete this sentence:

(name of person) is (not) very down to earth.

Think of another four examples.

It's is better to be down to earth than to have your head in the clouds!
