25 Ways To Use The Magic English Verb ‘Get’
‘Get’ in the English language is one of those seemingly magical words that a lot of people think can be used in almost any situation. Indeed it is a frequently used word on it’s own as well as with other words. Most of the time, this word is used in a phrasal verb which is a combination of two or more words, usually a verb + a preposition. One phrasal verb can have several different meanings and normally has a different meaning compared to when the two words are separated, for example:
get on / get out
So in the example above, to ‘get on’ can mean to enter a bus, train, tram, plane etc and to ‘get out’ means the same thing when you arrive at your destination, eg:
I get on the bus every morning at 8am.
I get out of the bus when it arrives at the bus stop near my office.
However, the words ‘on’ and ‘off’ have completely different meanings altogether, for example:
The CD player is now ‘on’.
So why do we need to learn phrasal verbs? Well, it’s because English is simply full of them in both written and spoken English and the more you can include them in your repertoire, the more you will come across as a fluent English speaker. So, take a look below at some of the most commonly used phrasal verbs with the magical word ‘get’:
So as you can see, the English verb ‘get’ is used in so many different ways. If you would like to sound more fluent in English and more like a native English speaker, then you should use as many of these as possible from the list above.
Whether you just learn one phrasal verb at a time and keep using it over and over again doesn’t matter. The time will feel right when you become more comfortable and decide to learn and include another one into your vocabulary, so don’t worry.
