Idioms and phrasal verbs
What's your method for studying phrasal verbs and idioms?
Do you read description of them in English and that's how you remember the meaning? Or do you also translate it into your mother tongue to be 100% sure about the meaning?

For example
1. brush up (on) - practice and improve your skills or knowledge of something
2. brush up (on) - translation in your mother tongue

What's your way to learn idioms and phrasal verbs?

In the beginning translation seems more tempting and I used to refer to two language dictionary. But over the time I switched completely to my target language dictionary. You'll get used to it after a time, even if it may seem strange in the start. It exponentially increases the learning curve.
However once in a while, if there's something complex that you don't understand then it's okay to translate to mother tongue.
