This is my first post to this forum since I am new to the site. My Spanish is getting veryy good with grammar and vocabulary but only one problem. I am looking for a list of common expressions which people use like "de hecho" and "chevere", not proverbs, but actual expressions using regular words. Can someone help me find these'

Almost any spanish word you look up in the SpanishDict Dictionary tab will give you idiomatic expressions using that word.
They are a great source of common expressions.

I don't know if you are looking something for slang too:

Hi Noam. Welcome to the forum.

I like this dictionary http://dictionary.reverso.net/spanish-english/parecer
also because it gives many examples of how to use a word.

Just type in the Spanish word and you'll get the meaning in English and several sentences using the word.

The word 'hecho' for example, brings up 45 uses of the word, including 'de hecho' (which means: in fact, as a matter of fact).

just in case, I wanted to point out that "Chevere" usually means "great" or "awesome." Bienvenida al foro!
