Video Spanish phrase 23: Quedarse de piedra

This week, Susana has our useful Spanish phrase for us: quedarse de piedra.

She gives us the example of being told a friend has suddenly moved to Australia… ¡¿Qué?! (You remember Manuel, from Fawlty Towers, don't you?). "Me quedé de piedra," we would say in Spain: literally, "I was turned to stone".

I was flabbergasted, in other words.

Susana teaches on our intensive Spanish courses (as well as being a tutor in our Spanish teacher training department).

If you'd like another useful Spanish phrase, watch the previous posts — and come back here next week for another.
