5 uses of 'get'
Hi, I'm Sian from BBC Learning English. Today, I'm going to give you five uses of the verb get. So you get five lessons for the price of one!
Number one - get can mean buy or obtain. I got myself a new phone last weekend.
Number two - get can mean receive. I just got a message.
Number three - get with an adjective can mean become. Ugh! So many messages! I'm getting really annoyed!
Number four - get can also mean understand. Hang on someone's just sent me a joke… I don't get it! ‘In tents!’ I get it!
Number five - get can also mean arrive. I need to get home early so I'm off!
