EFL teaching nowadays forms one of the most important disciplines all over the world. As a teacher of English, my interests are to investigate the problems that foreign language students come across in the process of teaching learning English. This, In turn, plays a big role in improving our awareness of the difficulties EFL students encounter and help in improving their level as well as the teaching learning process of English as a whole. This study investigates the strategies and difficulties that students encounter in translating idioms. It is hoped that the findings of this study will provide instructors, students, and courses writers with information on the strategies used by students as well as the difficulties they come across. The Instructors may give these difficult idioms more attention in the process of teaching learning idioms. As for the courses writers, it is hoped that more attention will be given to the idioms that are a source of difficulty for students.
