English and Spanish speakers share many things and one of those things is their love for sayings and expressions. As everybody knows, a literal translation of idioms is possible only in a few cases. In most of them, we find a different way to express the same idea. Here you can find 4 of the most famous sayings in English and Spanish. We hope you enjoy them.
