The teacher gets through this chapter too fast

I want to say that the teacher has not covered the chapter in details, and get through it too fast. Is it idiomatic to for the sentence above?


If you're talking about something that the teacher already did, you need the past tense:

The teacher went through that chapter too fast.

This sounds perfectly idiomatic.

Other ways of saying the same thing might be:

  • The teacher did not cover that chapter in enough detail.
  • The teacher sped through that chapter.
  • The teacher did not explain that chapter thoroughly enough.
