Hi,

A: Please get to the point. Why try to

1) get off the point?

2) get out of the point?



1 & 2 which one correct?

#1. #2 is not an expression that is used.

If you want to look at details, you could argue that you can't get off the point without first getting to the point.

Hi friend:

So we use " get off the point " as the opposite of " get to the point" , is it correct?

and " get out of point" is wrong?

Thanks

Hi,

So we use " get off the point " as the opposite of " get to the point" , is it correct? Yes, generally speaking. Although the verb can vary. We probably more often use 'go off the point'.

and " get out of point" is wrong? Yes, it is.

There are a number of other expressions we commonly use, eg

"You are getting away from the point"

"That's off the point"

"That's not the point"

"You are missimg the point"

Would it be correct to say "That's beside the point" to mean "That's off the point" / "That's not the point"?
Hi,

Yes, good English.
