Expressions in Spanish: Ser más lento que una tortuga

To learn expressions in the target language is essential because native speakers do use them all the time. 
Expressions are used in formal and informal speech. 
A language learner that is using expressions transmits certain information about him/her that is implied. Students communicating effectively with expressions show a deeper understanding of the language and also of the target culture.
This expression is just a comparison. A turtle is slow, doesn't go fast.
Sometimes expressions make sense in your native language others don't. It could be similar to phrasal verbs in English (just to some extent). So sometimes you will have to use just your memory to internalize them (you can use multiple techniques to do it, like acronyms, connect the expression to an image...)
What can we use expressions for?
For showing our proficiency in a language. Once you have mastered a certain number of expressions and include them in your interactions you are ready to go beyond the language borders.
