Student or Learner
I'm not sure about the proper use of this idiom.
I think it can be used for material things (i.e. I'm driving and a rock is in the middle of a road "Let's get past it on the right") but can it also be used for intellectual matters such as to get past a difficulty when speaking about a task to do at work?
Thank you for your help
Yes – it is also used metaphorically, like 'to hit a brick wall'.
