[속담 영어] 속담으로 배우는 영어 – (나)

남의 떡이 더 커 보인다
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
The apples on the other side of the wall are the sweetest.
Our neighbor´s ground yields better corn than ours.
Our neighbor´s cow yields better more milk than ours.

낫 놓고 기역 자도 모른다
Be so ignorant as not to know his ABC
Do not know A from B

낮말은 새가 듣고 밤말은 쥐가 듣는다
Walls[Pitchers] have ears.
Fields have eyes, and woods have ears.

내 손에 장을 지지겠다
I´ll eat my hat.

내 코가 석 자
I have my own fish to fry.
I have got myself into a hell of fix

냉수 먹고 속 차려라
Wake up and smell the coffee.

냉수 먹고 이 쑤시기
pretending as if one had a full stomach
