Word of the week: Out of touch

I'm sure you all know the expression "in touch", but what about the opposite "out of touch"? This week's expression is precisely

out of touch

which means no longer in communication with someone or no longer informed about something or up to date with something; and also no reflecting what is true or actual.

I've been out of touch with my brother for many years.
She's out of touch with new methods of teaching languages.
These statistics are out of touch with reality and cannot be used.
