    Talking 79-surprise

    Dear all

    Hello

    As you know, when s.th odd happens, we say that "He is surprised." But how do we say that when s.b IS GOING TO BE SURPRISED after another event? For example, I change the furniture of my house and I know my husband will be surprised. Shall I say?
    He will get surprised.
    Or
    He will become surprised.
    Which one is correct or which of these two are better to be used?

    Thanks all

    Matilda

    It would be best to use the phrase

    "he will be surprised"

    That is correct. "He will get surprised" and "He will become surprised" are both ungrammatical.
