I found this phrase on dictionary.com Spanish word of the day. What is the literal translation. I know it means to cool things down, but I can't find a verb "enfriar" or the work "animos".
ha enfriado los animos
Hi Jennifer, you can find both words in the dictionary.
have a look here:
And yes, it means to discourage, or cool things down. Possibly we can help you better with the whole sentence.
Enfriar;to cool,Animo;courage,disposition.dar animos;to encourage.I think it means something like;it dampened the spirits,or it discouraged.
