"TO HEAR SOMETHING ON THE GRAPEVINE"Nov 22, 2022
Do you know this expression?
The translation of "grape" is "uva" and a "grapevine" is the plant that the grapes grow on.
The main context that you can use this is when you hear something from an unofficial source.
So, for example: "I heard on the grapevine that he is going to leave the company" or "I heard on the grapevine that they have a bought a big house in the countryside".
You might have heard this expression before because it is the title of a song by Marvin Gaye!
Hope that helps!
