Learning! Cross-Cultural Idioms

Now here is a FUN FACT if I ever saw one! Or, more accurately, a series of fun facts. In the form of graphics. What could be better?

Okay, so what these actually are: a series of graphics representing idiomatic expressions from around the world, created by Matt Lindey of Hotel Club.

My favourite is the French expression for a mid-life crisis: to have a midday demon. Also Germany's katzensprung, or "a cat's jump" (indicating a short distance). Partially because the word is just so fun to say, and partially because you know and I know that cats are glorious.

It's well worth clicking through to the source at Hotel Club, they have broken each one down with a little explanation of the cultural background.
