To Wolf Down

Example 1: We found a lost puppy on our street. I don't know how long it was out there, but he was really hungry! He wolfed down a plate of food in a few minutes!

Example 2: I didn't have breakfast this morning and now I'm running late for lunch! I'm sure I'll just wolf it down when I finally have time..

Explanation: to wolf down means to eat extremely quickly

This idiom is from LSI's new edition of "Reading Horizons," which will be used in the Level 6 Reading classes. For more information, please visithttp://www.languagesystems.com/
