Student or Learner
1) I am weak in English. I must receive English tuition. Correct and Can I use "take" in place of "receive"?
2) I don't like sweet things. Though I am eating a pastry. Correct?
Many thanks in advance.
When will "receive" use?
Is "some" necessary to use?

I need to have some lessons.
I will get some lessons.
I had some driving lessons when I was seventeen.
In a formal context, I might use it but probably only in the past tense. "I received some training in that computer system at my previous workplace but I plan to undergo some further training in the near future".
"Some" is not obligatory, it just seemed appropriate.
