This book is the brainchild of some friends living in Brussels. We often sat together and enjoyed the fact that languages sometimes have completely different ways to say the same thing. And Torsten Peters asked himself: Why not note this down and make funny illustrations?
Language experts and -lovers will enjoy the illustrations and may still discover some new and amusing idioms. For language learners our idioms can be the key to really discover, enjoy and live the new language. And children will love the illustrations and become curious to discover languages.
This book is an experiment, it’s work in progress: We very much look forward to reading your comments to make the book more enjoyable and useful. Really! We will reply to every single message we receive. Your feedback will improve the next, more complete, edition of this book.
