Hi, every body!

Every one who learns a new language always has problem with idioms. So do I, As I'm learning English. Here is some common idioms in Farsi for Farsi learners.These idioms were useful to me for my English. So, let's get started:

 

He is as well known as the village pump:  مثل گاو پیشونی سفید

He is charming:مهره مار داره

He's out for trouble: دنبال در درسر میگرده/ تنش میخاره

 Come what may: هر چه بادا باد

Long time no see: پارسال دوست امسال آشنا/خیلی وقته ندیدمت

 

I had a terrible time of it: پدرم درومد

The apple of one's eye: نور چشمی یا عزیز دردانه

 

This is as easy as abc: مثل آب خوردن

A rough estimate: حساب سرانگشتی

We seek water in the sea: آب در کوزه و ما تشنه لبان می گردیم

 

Don't ask for the moon: آرزوی محال نکن

We are now even: حالا بی حساب شدیم

 

You are dreaming:دلت خوشه ها

Dream on: به همین خیال باش

 You are going too fun: دیگه شورشو درآوردیا

 

the situation is way out of control: کار ازین حرفا گذشته

 

to flatter: پاچه خواری

 

Take it or leave it: میخ خوای بخواه! نمیخوای نخواه

 

I am not a mind reader : علم غیب که ندارم

He has a hand in high places :طرف خرش خیلی میره

俞正声说:“汪弋鸢不说日语也能上班。”

 人家为什么要说外语?人家家里人是领导,比你们老干部大的,你要问他说谁?他说是俞正声。她为什么能说你呢,因为你考试作弊,进不了上外,她是货真价实能去做日语翻译的,比你专业。她学一学周洪波,到你家附近找你,因为你是男的,她是女的,你有不用找男人。你问俞正声是不是?他又不用帮你们老干部,你们家的人惨了,捣浆糊,她说你学了说了等于白做,最后变成不会说话的人。我们讲的不对啊?你说日本人话啊,我们为什么要学你?我们有钱有房
