This phrase from the film Murder of Crows is pronounced by an Austrian scientist in German. In the script I have it in translation into English. White wing is a name of a crow taking part in the experiment.
White Wing is starting to master some of the skills of being an omnivore. Clearly, it’s a big learning curve.
Does " a big learning curve" mean that nothing is learnt by her easily, that to master this skill she has to learn many other things, so to say to go a long winding (curved) way?
