Estamos en el ecuador del curso

Esta expresión quiere decir estar en la mitad del curso, como se diría en inglés?

We're at midpoint of the course. Once you get past the midpoint you can say: we're over the hump.
If the course you are referring to is related to school, you can say:
we are at midterm.

I agree with Poli and Elaina.

We're at midterm.
We're halfway through the course.

What does midterm mean?

And also I need to know the mean of the word halfway.

And if you can give me examples using those words.

I appreciate your help.

These sentences are translations of the sentence in the title of the thread, and are good examples.

So, midterm and halfway through the course both mean el ecuador del curso.

Then I can use midterm in this sentence.


I'm midterm Carmen City and Campeche.

Estoy entre ciudad del Carmen y Campeche.


I'm not sure if can use the word Midterm and halfway to say entre. it like with the use of the months, when you need to say the English's class is entre Marzo y Abril.


I appreciate your help.

The word midterm and the phrase halfway through the course are translations of the title in the thread ONLY.

To say that you're located in between two places, you say "I'm halfway between Carmen City and Campeche."

Then needly, I have to use the word halfway to write the last phrase.

Then if I want to say.

I'm between halfway your house and the store. It's correct this way.


I understood of your phrase that I have to use the word halfway or midterm depending of the phrase.
