Hello beautiful reader ❤️. This is another chapter of our series — Swedish fluency bits. This is a series of short lessons based on native expression. I hope you will like it!
Att ha tummen mitt handen — To be impractical
There is a nice idiomatic expression in Swedish used for impractical people. Att ha tummen mitt handen = Att vara opraktiskt, klumpig eller hjälplös.
A word-for-word translation would be “to have a thumb in the middle of the hand”
Kursledaren har detaljerade beskrivningar så att även den som har tummen mitt i handen klarar uppgiften.
The course leader has detailed descriptions so that even “the one with the thumb in the middle of the hand “can handle the task.
