I believe that idioms are heavily culturally contextual
We must understand the background and context of a certain idiom before using it in a sentence

We just can't translate an idiom into a foreign language Without considering the cultural context. For example we can't expect other to understand "just like a pinang slashed into two"

Even in between ESL cultures this may cause confusions \)b

well, U.K has its own idiom, like "butterface" , "braindrain", etc

I'm still green at learning idioms, but think it is fun.
There is an interesting section for learning idioms on BBC website.
BBC Learning English > Grammar, Vocab, Pronunciation > The Teacher
"The Teacher" teaches us some English idioms using thematic keywords through funny videos. \)
