We use the word get over a thousand times a day in conversations.

Eg. He gets up at six O´clock. Gets into the bathroom and gets a shower. gets downstairs and gets the milk from the fridge to make coffee. He gets food for the dog and gets his breakfast finished by seven am. He gets his brief case and gets into the car. Then he gets to his office by eight am. A lady speaks to him in a strange language and he doesn't get what she is saying. He has to get through a lot of work, but by five pm he has gotten through it all. He gets his jacket and gets his car from the parking, then he gets home by seven thirty and gets his dinner before getting the dog out for a walk. he gets to bed by ten pm. he never finds it hard to get to sleep.


Utilizamos la palabra get más de mil veces al día en las conversaciones.

Por ejemplo, se levanta a las seis. Se mete en el baño y se ducha. Baja las escaleras y coge la leche de la nevera para hacer café. Coge comida para el perro y se termina el desayuno a las siete de la mañana. Coge su maletín y se mete en el coche. Llega a su despacho a las ocho de la mañana. Una señora le habla en un idioma extraño y él no entiende lo que dice. Tiene que hacer mucho trabajo, pero a las cinco de la tarde ya lo ha hecho todo. Coge su chaqueta y coge su coche del aparcamiento, luego llega a casa a las siete y media y cena antes de sacar al perro a pasear. se acuesta a las diez de la noche. nunca le cuesta conciliar el sueño.

More lessons on get soon. Stay safe.
