common phrases – modi di dire: il mare

Posted by Monica Corrias on November 2, 2008

Oggi vedremo qualche espressione legata al “mare”:

– Cercare per mare e per monti = to look high and low for

– Essere in alto mare= to be all at sea

– Promettere mari e monti = to promise the moon and the stars

– Essere in un mare di guai = a sea of troubles  [tipica l’espressione informale: S’è cacciato (o ficcato) in un mare di guai = He’s gotten himself into a sea of troubles]
