Skill level 2 – easy
Being “la pera” (the pear), “la repera” (the re-pear) or ”la pera limonera” (the lemon tree pear), is a Spanish language expression that means to be the “maximum” you can imagine, positive or negatively. It could be used with people, objects or situations. It could refer, depending of context, to any attribute: for instance being very weird, being very lazy, being very good, being very complicated, being very skillful etc. If you are “la pera”, you are fabulous, you are great, you are terrific. Aren’t you that? Sure you are.
