Italian Idioms no longer in SHOP
When I got a number of lessons down, I went to the shop and saw I could purchase two bonus lessons, one on flirting and one on Italian idioms and phrases. I purchased the flirting one first and was going to go back and purchase the idioms one, but now the idioms one is gone. Is there a way to get it back, or will it come back into the shop after I complete more lessons?
Meno male! Batti il fero finché è caldo. Sei come un pesce fuori dell'acqua. Sei duro come un mule. Non vedo l'ora!
Just a few from Idioms...
I do not find them on Android any more myself but I have already done them anyway.
It may appear elsewhere, check your tree. You haven't missed a great deal. Move on and enjoy your learning.
I'd be careful watching the Simpsons in a foreign language since the dialogue has a lot of double meanings. In this clip, it is true that the meaning at face value is that the roast is ruined, but it means that there is no substance to the item. The literal translation is "All smoke and no roast". The American term is "All hat and no cattle", which is a term used to describe people who were pretending to be more important than they were.
What would I have to do with the first thing? Because I do watch "The Simpsons" in a foreign language (the language spoken in my country): Spanish.
And I am now aware about the double meaning in the translation (mainly after seeing the non-literal translation into Spanish), that's what idioms do.
I mean in a language you are learning because they seem to slip in a joke here (which in the English version is not made because we do not have an applicable saying). The english version does say "My roast is ruined" but the Italian translation means something different and would probably elicit a chuckle.
