C’est la vie, mi casa su casa, et cetera

If you understand each of those phrases, guess what? You can speak multiple languages! :)

Alright, so maybe that’s pushing the envelope a little, but it’s true. We grow up learning not just English, but phrases in other languages like French, Spanish, and Latin. In fact, those phrases are so ingrained in our society that they’re essentially just another “word” in the English dictionary.

The fact is, it probably works both ways. Do you know any popular English phrases that are used in the everyday conversation of another language?
