Bạn đang xem: Phrase usage:

For Example:- Q: "Is your application working(software)"? A: "Yes, it works like a charm"?

Kindly throw some light on its usage. Can I use it in email khổng lồ business clients or in a IM chat?


Works lượt thích a charm is an idiom meaning something that beings good luck or success & seems to have magical powers

Charms are trinkets which people have for good luck. Examples are rabbit"s foot and horse shoes.

The expression is informal, but very effective sầu expressively.

A formal business equivalent would be

Works like a charm is equivalent to lớn works like a dream. Both are colloquial positive sầu praises for something
