A follow on from my first one.

Sound out the word with the clues:

  1. I can move to the right, but also shift to the left.
  2. Actually, I'm not quite sure now.
  3. Oh wait, now I've got the hang of it.
  4. But now I'm slaughtered.

  1. I can move to the right, but also shift to the left.

That's got to be TAB, as in the tab key on a computer keyboard. Tab moves you to the right, but shift+tab moves you to the left.

  1. Actually, I'm not quite sure now.

I'm guessing this is something like ER - a noise made when not quite sure.

  1. Oh wait, now I've got the hang of it.

You've got the KNACK of it (thanks @Mnemonic).

  1. But now I'm slaughtered.

You've been CULLed.

Overall answer:

TAB+ER+KNACK+CULL - "Sound out the word" = TABERNACLE.
