Idiomatic expressions constitute a really important part of a language: they add fun, humor and a little spice to your everyday speech. Dutch and Flemish are two languages particularly rich in idiomatic expressions. We love them! But for non-Dutch speakers, they can be quite challenging. When literally translating, it is sometimes impossible to get their actual meaning and you get some pretty strange-sounding and funny sentences!
So here comes your second challenge!
Part 1: If you have been studying Dutch already, try translating the sentences into Dutch/Flemish.
Part 2: Try guessing the meaning. Don't worry if it turns out you're completely off... It's normal! :)
Part 3: Take these expressions to a Flemish speaker and ask him to explain them to you! It's really funny for us to see these sentences translated in English, so for sure it will be a fun moment for the both of you!
