Review of the Big Red Book of Spanish Idioms
The Big Red Book of Spanish Idioms is a very interesting book to read. This book is intended to be read by students, travelers and language-lovers. According to the book’s author, this book has over 4,000 commonly used idiomatic and colloquial expressions in Spanish and close to 8,000 English translations.
In addition to a Spanish-English dictionary, this book also has an English-Spanish dictionary so that you can easily find the Spanish equivalent of any English expression.
This book includes humorous expressions, figurative expressions, slang, proverbs, and many other types of expressions. I even found several vulgar expressions. Some of the common expressions that you will find in this book are:
- Por si las moscas
- Ser un diamante en bruto
- Ser el ombligo del mundo
- Poner los cuernos a alguien
- Hacer de tripas corazón
Although I would not recommend this book for anyone who only has a beginner’s level of understanding Spanish, both intermediate and advanced students will find this book helpful and interesting.
