    Question Do you think this phrase is idiom?

    Hey,

    I have a question from my student. "The song can be seen as an encouragement to those who want to move forward in times of great hardship." In this sentence, is in times of the phrase or the idiom? In an English-Japanese dictionary, it is said that it is a kind of idiom, but there is no explanation in English-English dictionary. Please tell me the answer as soon as possible

    Welcome to the forum h1296004.

    'In times of' is just a normal phrase of three words. I don't consider it to be an idiom
