I'm getting the drift?

Hi again, what about this phrase: I think I’m getting the drift now. Would that be considered good idiomatic English?
Thank you and happy Easter!

Hi again Nicole,

Getting the drift is fine. I think it’s quite expressive in the sense that it suggests you get the general trend or flow of a statement.


Hi Nicole

This idiom also exists with the verb ‘catch’ --> ‘to catch someone’s drift’.

After he explained the problem in more detail, I finally caught his drift.
