Idiom Teaching Tools

I often run into idioms while learning Spanish and even in basic German. I'd like to suggest a "hover" or explanation for them as if it was a new word. Sometimes I can figure them out, but other times hover over each word and logic just aren't sufficient. I recently encountered "El hombre habla a sus espaldas", I translated it to "the man speaks to their backs" (as some duolingo translations are that peculiar) and it is actually is "The man talks behind their backs". Thanks!
