Idiom of the Week – Week 47

Each week of 2017 we present an English idiom.

“to be on the fence”: to be undecided; s. nicht entscheiden können

Example 1:  I’m on the fence about the designer’s suggestions for the new logo. On the one hand I like this one, but I like that one too.

Example 2:  We have to reach a decision about the investment. Ron, are you still on the fence, or are you leaning more towards one option now?
