and how it’s used in real life English conversations.

Now, let me tell you right off the bat – more often than not, this particular idiom is used in a negative context.

Basically it means that you’ll be most likely saying that you CAN’T wrap your head around something as opposed to saying that you can or you find it easy to wrap your head around something.

Are you curious as to what exactly this phrase means?

Would you like to be able to use it in your daily English conversations?

You gotta be speaking it out loud – that’s the first rule of English fluency! 😉
