Mensagem: 

I can assure y'all that in all of North America it is "come to grips with" not "

 

I know you are American and have all the authority to say what you just said, but try to put yourself  in the shoes of a green EFL student, Isn't it hard for us to figure out what we can say or write, since I myself got the expression "get to grips with" from a highly respected dictionary of comtemporary idioms (Longman) ??? I mean, it appears to be a damned if you do damned if you don't situation. Thus, I'd apreciate if you give us some advice on how we should choose the right idiom, expression, slang and so on.   

 

Thanx in advance.
