    Halfway through

    I don't know how to use "halfway" correctly with other verbs.
    Could somebody help me with that by giving some examples?

    A) I have learned the poem halfway.

    B) I am halfway through with my poem learning.

    Both of them sounds strange to me.
    Could you give more examples?


    Thanks

    Re: Halfway through

    I would say "I am halfway through learning the poem."

    I find that more natural than "I am halfway through with my poem learning".

    However, I don't really see how one can be halfway through learning a poem. I'd go for "I've learnt half the poem".

    Re: Halfway through

    "Halfway through learning the poem" means you have learned half and have another half to go.
