Idiomatic expressions are the ‘salt and pepper’ of any language and in Spanish notably they give it its colour and imagery, its richness and variety. From set phrases and idioms to metaphorical expressions and proverbs, these essential components allow users to add humour and spice to their language, vividly embodying Hispanic culture while naturalizing their language to more closely resemble that of native speakers. Spanish Idioms in Practicepresents a selection of the most widely used idioms from Spain and Latin America. Classified into semantic catgories to facilitate learning, each idiom is illustrated by means of clear and comprehensive examples. Similarities between English and Spanish idiomatic usage are highlighted and both literal and equivalent translations are given where possible. Unlike other sources of idioms Spanish Idioms in Practicealso provides a wealth of specially designed exercises which allow students to make better connections and associations with the new material. Through these practical exercises learners gain an in-depth understanding, greater proficiency, and crucially, confidence in the usage of idiomatic Spanish. Practical, informative and highly entertaining, this is the ideal text for all intermediate and advanced learners of Spanish
