I didn’t know most words and expressions, I think I only knew “pig out”. I came across it on a website. But the other ones I didn’t know.

I never had a piggy bank as a kid. I used to get all my savings in a can, but I emptied it. :D

Thank you very much, Ronnie! It’s so much fun to learn English with you. Bye! See you! All the best to you and your family.

That’s easy for Russians! We have some expression with word “pig” – in Russian it means свинья. It sounds like (svin’ya) For example: we call very dirty room or place “свинарник” that means the pig’s home as you do. We call a person who intentionally hurt you or who is very rude “Pig!” – Свинья! as well. But if it happens to eat too much we use the word derived from the name of the animal: хомяк – хомячить (khom’yatchyt’) i.e. hamster. We form the verb from the noun “hamster” to express great uncontrolled appetite. Thanks for the lesson!

Wednesday, July 20th 2016

    Another English word for pigs is “swine”, which comes from the same root!
