call a spade a spade

Fig. to call something by its right name; to speak frankly about something, even if it is unpleasant. (Considered offensive by some. Use only with discretion.) Well, I believe it's time to call a spade a spade. We are just avoiding the issue. Let's call a spade a spade. The man is a liar.

Интересная английская идиома. А я никогда её прежде не слышала. Мне начинает казаться, что при обучению любому языку, после базовой грамматики, надо сразу же начинать учить идиомы. По крайней мере, мне точо следовало бы с них начинать.
