Translating expressions

If it's not too much trouble please put an icon or some visual cue that the sentence you have to translate is an expression and should not be translated literally.

I've encountered a couple while practicing Spanish and it might be a nice addition to the system :)

I agree, some sort of notification that the sentence is an expression would be great.

I know, I hate it when my translation is marked wrong after I've struggled to figure it out. But on the other hand, making a mistake makes the expression easier to remember for me. Still, at least they could let us know afterwards, because sometimes even after the fact it's not clear.
