๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง GRAMMAR: GET + INFINITIVE/ING ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง


✅ GET + INFINITIVE
Very common in spoken English but used very specifically like below. 
a) gradual development 
b) to have an opportunity/be allowed 

- She is not horrible. She can be nice. You should GET TO KNOW her. (spend time to understand what kind of person she is) 
- I know you don't like grechka but soon enough you'll GET TO LIKE it. 

- We didn't GET TO BUY any grechka. There wasn't any left (we didn't manage to) 
- When do I GET TO MEET your sister? (have the opportunity to meet/be allowed) 

✅ GET + ING = "start....ing" 

- It's getting late. We had better get moving! (time to go)
