101 Spanish Idioms
LearnPlus Rating
 

 

If you want to know why some Spanish 'make good crumbs with someone' or 'pull chestnuts out of the fire for someone,' this is the book for you. It is a collection of common idiomatic expressions (or 'modismos' in Spanish) divided into several categories. There are both the literal translation of the Spanish idiom and the English equivalent.
To make the use of the idiom clearer, there are also examples that place the idiom in context: you can see how the expression is used in a dialog or a text. Translations into English are given at the end of the book.
Last but not least, a funny drawing represents the literal meaning of each of the idioms. This can be a good device to help memorization for those who have a visual memory or like visual mnemonics.

 

If you are keen to push your knowledge of Spanish a bit further or are curious about the meaning of some typical Spanish expressions, this is a nice book with great illustrations.

Suitable for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students 101 Spanish Proverbs LearnPlus Rating
 

 

This is the equivalent of the book above, but deals with 'proverbios' (proverbs or well-known sayings). Proverbs can give you a useful insight into the popular wisdom of Spanish culture.
In this book, each proverb is presented with a literal translation as well as its English equivalent. Understanding the correct meaning of a specific expression is easy thanks to the examples given: a dialog shows how the saying can be used in everyday situations. You will find the English translations of the dialogs at the back of the book. Great illustrations accompany each proverb. They portray the literal meaning of the saying and make for amusing reminders.


You can learn to communicate more effectively if you learn to use proverbs correctly. Remember that in Spanish 'unos dicen lo que saben y otros saben lo que dicen' (some say what they know and others know what they say).
