Idioms, sayings, and slang are those words and phrases that give a language its personality and color. Because they usually don't make sense when translated literally, you'll need to memorize them. Pick up one or two here, another three over there, until you have an impressive collection. Here's where you get to break the rules and have fun with language. For several sections here, the Spanish phrases are presented first. As a challenge, why not try to figure out the meaning of the Spanish phrase before you read the English translation?
