Q Vocab: Walk Tall


The phrase 'walk tall' means to be brave and confident in your abilities.

For example:

1. I can walk tall because I really am proud of my job as a nurse. I believe I can make a difference.

2. Making presentations can be scary. After I did them a couple of times my confidence really improved. Now I just go out and walk tall and enjoy them!

Don't confuse it with

A 'tall story' is one which is unlikely to be true as it is full of overly interesting or exciting details.

My mate said he went to China and met Jet Li and they learned kung fu together and even shot a movie. But I don't believe him. He's full of tall tales.
