get familiar with
Do I use get familiar with correctly?
John was not familiar with cooking.
After I answered his questions and taught him, he is familiar with cooking now.
So, I helped him to get familiar with cooking.
I think it means
Someone was not familiar with something, and he becomes familiar with that thing now.
Re: get familiar with
Yes. (In another context, 'get familiar with' can have asexual connotation, giving rise to many exchanges such as A: 'It'll give the men a chance to get familiar with their new colleagues.' B: 'Not too familiar, I hope' (the studio audience laughs uproariously). But in this case you're right.)
