建議多看看那些圖,當美國人說一個idiom或proverb時心中都會有一個picture,看了以後會了解他們是怎麼想,這樣可以建立native speaker的思考模式。

一個有趣的idiom:

to pull someone's leg
顯然對於"扯後腿",中西方的解釋並不相同。

Uh huh! It is useful. Take one idiom for example:

to get over (sickness or a sad experience)

I used to think "over" here means "finished" as in "Let's get it over," and did not quite comprehend the picture as "over" does not function as a verb and thus "to get over" sounds awkward. After seeing the illustration, now I get it. That's how Americans think.
