Day 22

For all levels: Tell your favorite idiom in your target language(s)

I really like the Welsh idiom, "Rhoi'r ffidl yn y tôt." Literally this means, "To put the fiddle in the roof," but it actually means to give up doing something.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

A common phrase in Irish these days is "Tá sé fuar go leor inniu"

PRONOUNCED: taw shay foor guh lore inn-u

MEANING: It's a cold one today!
