    I'm getting the hang of it

    Hello.

    I'm getting the hang of it.

    Does it mean I'm getting to be taken up with it (or getting a bee in one's bonnet)?

    Thanks a lot.

    Great, Svartnik. Idioms are your area of expertise. When it comes to idioms, my hat's off to you.

    get the hang of sth (informal) to learn how to do or to use sth; to understand sth: Itís not difficult once you get the hang of it. I canít seem to get the hang of this game. I never got the hang of negative numbers.

    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    get the hang of
    informal : to learn the skills that are needed to do (something)
    ▪ He was finally getting the hang of his job. [=he was finally beginning to understand and become skillful in his job]
    ▪ She's getting the hang of driving.
