Hi KYTTIE,

If you get the hang of something, you start to understand it.

Hi Joydaniel,

The expression 'get the hang of it' suggests that you understand how something works or functions. You could use this with reference to a lot of activities. Let's just take one activity - making a recording of a television programme. You have read the instruction booklet again and again and you still can't make it work properly and you would say: I have tried and tried to make a recording but I just can't get the hang of it. Do you know anyone who can help me get the hang of it?

Alan

Hi Dhivya1,

I see you have quoted something I wrote a couple of years ago. Is there something you wanted to ask about it?
