An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the meaning of its words, so you have to learn idioms by heart. By the way, "by heart" is an idiom meaning "by memory" (de memoria).
Learning idioms can be hard, so I thought of organising a sort of weekly contest in which my students could give the meaning of these expressions in Spanish.
A new idiom or proverb will be posted each week so that you can give a proper tarnslation in Spanish. Remember idioms cannot be translated literally.
This week's proverb:
"The early bird catches the worm"
Post your translations as soon as possible. Who will be the winner?
