I had initially thought of writing this post in Romanian, but realised the audience would be slightly more limited :). But, as Romanian is my mother tongue, and is not as popular as others, but a very rich and beautiful language, I thought it would be nice to present some idioms and expressions that are extremely creative and vivid.
Try to guess the meaning of the idioms before you read the explanation. How many did you get right?
By the way, there is actually a website dedicated to ‘mint rubbing‘ – have a look, it explains this concept in details and it is a source of fun.
BONUS: I have recently heard of this French idiom and I simply LOVE it! And since French is also a Romance language like Romanian, with so many things in common, I had to share it.
I really hope you enjoyed the beauty and richness of my mother tongue. If so, I’d love to hear which is your favourite of the above idioms in a comment below. And don’t forget to add one in your language!
