“I couldn’t really understand the exchange student from Mexico. I guess I need to brush up on my Spanish.” 「メキシコの留学生が言ってることがあまりわからなかった。スペイン語の勉強をやり直さなきゃ!」

昔勉強したことをほとんど忘れてしまっていませんか?その場合は使う前に勉強をやり直す必要があります。Brush upという表現はたぶん「ブラシで汚れを取る」というイメージが由来です。

If you studied something a long time ago, you may have forgotten a lot of what you learned! In that case, you need to brush up on the subject before using it. The phrase “brush up” probably comes from the image of cleaning something with a brush.
