You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation. Croatia Week has launched its ‘Word / Phrase of the Day’, where we will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.
– Da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti
The phrase “Da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti” is commonly used to describe a person who ceases to amaze, a real character, and literally translates as ‘if he didn’t exist you would have to invent him’.
Examples: – Seinfeld and George might be talking about Kramer and say da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti.
– Charlie Sheen..da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti.
