Jason: I know, it was the same for me too, but don’t worry. If you keep on using it, you’ll soon get the feel of it.
Jen: I hope so.

본문에서 제가 “Oh man, this computer software is a little complicated to use. 이런, 이 컴퓨터 소프트웨어는 사용하기가 좀 복잡하다.” 라면서 Jason에게 불평을 하는데요. Jason은 “I know, it was the same for me too, but don’t worry. If you keep on using it, you’ll soon get the feel of it. 나도 그랬어. 그런데 걱정 마. 계속 사용하다 보면 곧 익숙해질 거야.”라고 안심시킵니다. 그러자 저는 “I hope so. 나도 그랬으면 좋겠어.”라고 말합니다.

Today’s expression is get the feel of something. Get the feel of something means to become familiar with something. When you begin to understand how to do something and get accustomed to doing something, I’m sure you’ve become much more comfortable than before. Get the feel of ~은 ‘무엇에 익숙해지다’, ‘감을 잡다’라는 뜻입니다. 뭐든지 처음부터 잘하는 사람은 없죠. 계속 연습하고 시도하다 보면, 익숙해지고 조금씩 요령을 알게 되는 겁니다.

오늘 본문에서 저는 컴퓨터에 새 소프트웨어를 설치한 모양입니다. 그런데 기능이 낯설어서 그런지 사용하기 어렵다고 하네요. Jason은 자기도 처음에는 어려웠지만, 곧 익숙해질 거라고 말합니다. “I know, it was the same for me too, but don’t worry. If you keep on using it, you’ll soon get the feel of it.”라고요.

Here is another example sentence. “It took me a while to get the feel of the new smartphone.”라고 하면 "새 스마트폰에 익숙해지는 데 한참 걸렸어.” 라고 해석할 수 있습니다.
