Here we are, searching for something new to sink our teeth into. Can you imagine biting into a phrase, and then eating it? This is how I see internalizing this language as you continue learning. It’s about finding ideas that you really want to express in English and then, discovering phrases that help you do this in a new way. Maybe you only need one new phrase per day. Maybe that’s enough.
A tour of the Prado museum (in English, obviously) gave Ana a place to look at art, while thinking and writing in English at the same time.
Ana chose this painting and added this comment:
«This is Mars, the god of war, but I’ve always thought that he looks like a member of the village people.» 😅😜
Just this has brought more color and humor into our days as we continue staying home. And I hope this gives you some new ideas as well as something new to sink your teeth into!
If you would like a definition of this phrase «something to sink your teeth into«:
I would say this: to become totally involved and engaged in something with a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
And, even though I don’t believe translation helps much for learning, maybe «hincar el diente» begins to capture the idea metaphorically.
