- For Teachers
I s it correct to say 'I have got the chance to win the competition or I have got the chance of winning the competition'?
What is the natural way of expressing it then?
Informally, you could say "I've got the chance to win the competition."
or "I've got the chance of winning the competition."
Normally, you wouldn't expand "I've got". Additionally, I've got simply means I have in informal AmEnglish.
In formal situations, you could say "I have the chance to win the competition."
or "I have the chance of winning the competition."
Hope that helps.

I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
Hope that makes it clearer.
It makes your reasoning clearer, but it's still wrong.
