You go to the dentist here in Spain; now, would that be expensive? "Expensive?" says Susana, in this week's useful Spanish expression: "¡Me ha costado un ojo de la cara!". Literally, it cost me an eye, when in English we'd say it cost an arm and a leg. Not much cheaper in the UK then, in that case, is it 😉 ?
Susana is a tutor on our Spanish teacher training courses, as well as teaching on our intensive Spanish courses. We loved the collaborative poems she did with a class last week, which you can find over on our Spanish teachers' blog (content in Spanish).
