How to use « get » in English
There are lots of challenges when it comes to learning English.
Sometimes it’s a lack of vocabulary. Sometimes you don’t find your words.
As a result, you use structures that don’t sound very natural in English.
This also can limit your comprehension. Sometimes you think you know a word, but it has different meanings that maybe you don’t know.
« Get » is a good example, because it can mean many different things in English.
