    Get started with, get initiated in/into...

    Will these constructions be natural for a native speaker?

    'To get initiated in the resolution of simple mathematical problems", or "To get started with the use of ICTs for learning purposes".

    Thanks so much!

    Welcome to the forum.

    We can always give you a better informed answer if you incorporate phrases you are asking about into complete sentences.

    To get initiated- this doesn't work for me. To get started is fine.

    Don't forget that we don't use the upside-down question mark/exclamation mark at the beginning of a sentence in written English, like you do in Spanish. Also, note that there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
