    get to know

    On this week's edition of BBC News Living Online we get to know this whiz-kid with plans to revolutionise the education system, integrating electronics into everyday classes.

    On this week's edition of BBC News Living Online we will know this whiz-kid with plans to revolutionise the education system, integrating electronics into everyday classes.

    What is the difference in the meaning of the above two sentences with respect to "get to know"? What does "get to know" mean here?
    Thanks

    The second sentence makes no sense. What do you think "get to know" might mean?

    Re: get to know

    Please don't change a post after someone has responded to it. It can make nonsense of any responses. Simply post a new message explaining your slip and giving the correct sentence.

    Even with the correct, the second doesn't work.
