Frases Verbais Idiomáticas

Introduction Introdução
Idioms are the odd phrases in a language that don't have clear meanings from the composition of their words. They have an extra meaning that only proficient speakers of that language understand.

In English, we says things like "take after". You're not really taking anything, and after what? But we all know it means "to resemble someone or something".

Portuguese has many of these phrases, and in this lesson you will learn the most common ones containing verbs.

There are also many common idiomatic phrases made with prepositions.
