As argued by teacher Blanca and the author of this article, who doesn't love a good idiom, and animals? Combining the two, this article explores ten useful everyday idioms that you can easily incorporate into your Spanish vocabulary.
I am confused if this is about Spanish idioms or English ones. The first example you translate as slow as a snail, but the Spanish word is Tortuga, which is turtle or tortoise. Why not say slow as a turtle? English speakers would get that.
I would think a purely Spanish idiom is
Me chupo el dedo
it poorly translates into English as I suck my thumb. But I understand it to mean “I really don’t believe you”.
Thank you for the lesson.
