An idiom is a group of words that does not literal meaning of word. For example, once in a blue moon- means sometimes. Idiomatic language beautifies literature piece. Phrase is using a group of words instead of one word. Phrase gives the same meaning as words used. For example- As ill luck would have it- is a phrase meaning unluckily.

Example: "add insult to injury": To make a bad situation even worse.

Idioms and phrases is the peculiar way of representing something in a language.

It contains normal words of that language, but gives a special meaning, it may seldom contain new words

If a person is able to use idioms and phrases of another language effectively, he should probably be very good in that language
