  1. I think it's more natural to go with the flow and not putting to much thought into the exact words. This is more about going with the meaning of the subject at hand.
  2. I imagine that it would be tricky because it's a matter of going with the flow and pros, not with the literal word. Google and see if you could find any transulations already made in English for your poem. I hope this helps.
  3. In the US, they usually look for true to word and true to meaning for court cases. Thank you for sharing. This is very interesting.
  4. It's not accurate as I would not expect it to be, because there are many dialects of all the languages. I like it better than the others because google made their's better.
  5. It's so important to me that I corrected my lawyer on a legal document today. She left out the verb "the".
  6. One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch. I could mean that one bad kid doesn't ruin it for the rest of the kids.
  7. Thank you for sharing the link. I looked up:" A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". It means that it's better to have lesser, but the probility of having more could be greater or nothing at all. The historic meaning refers to the mid-evil Falconry where the bird is a valiable asset and certainly worth more than two in the bush.
  8. Don't let the door hit you in the rear- bad behavior reaps fire coming back at you What goes around, comes around- what ones says and does to others, comes back to them. So make what you benefiary to others and positive.
  9. This means that if you breakup your relationship that there is more people out there for you to choose from. You can still find Mister or Misses right.
  10. I'm not sure about Bee Knee's. But cat's ass means that one doesn't care about the other.
  11. Crackerjack It's suppose to mean that you are good at something.
  12. Today, in learning Spanish, you have many more jobs open to you. Bilinqual is a plus in this society. There are many Spanish speaking people, who have a hard time in learning American English. Some are not applying themselves as they should, but for others who work very hard at it, it's difficult for themat first.
  13. I would like to learn more Spanish. This because there is a need where I live, for Spanish people, who don't understand the American English and they need someone to teach it to them.
  14. Yes, it's very important to learn the profanity. This is so you can make a choice to remove yourself from the situation if you are uncomfortable with it or redirect someone to another topic. Then if you like it, you will be able to take part in the discussion. An added advantage, if you are mad at someone who doesn't like profanity, you can cuss them out in another language that they don't know. Learning the profanity, allows you the speaker to make informed decisions.
