Welcome back to our “Idioms of the World” series!
Ok, tomorrow is the last country! For now, prepare yourself for Italy.
Idiom – In bocca al lupo
Meaning – Good luck!
English idiom -Break a leg
“Into the mouth of a wolf” is a very popular Italian phrase that’s similar to our “break a leg”, and perhaps much more understandable. You’d say it to someone facing a tough trial or nerve-wracking performance, such as an exam or a concert. But don’t say “thank you” in response: it’s bad luck. The correct answer is “may the wolf die”.
