French Idioms Lesson 1

Just as learning verbs, nouns, vocabulary, etc. is important to learning a new language, so is learning idiomatic expressions whose meanings cannot be translated literally.

Ils Ă©taient sur les dents

Idiomatic meaning: They were under great pressure.

Literal meaning: They were on their teeth.
