    you get to watch

    Hi,

    I always have had problems on how and where to use "get". Does " you get to watch" can be rewritten as " it's shown to you..."?

    If you thought ideation was fun, get ready for creation. Sure, we’ve all written some things before, but the creation phase of content marketing is where you get to watch that beloved idea start to take shape.

    Thanks

    Sepmre, what has happened to your spelling?

    (Also, the sentence I've quoted above doesn't make any sense even when spelt correctly.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'm so sorry for my terrible spelling.

    No. You could say it's where "you get the opportunity to watch ...".

    Don't put a space after opening quotation marks.

    The correct way to formulate your question is "Can XXX be written as YYY?" We don't say "Does ... can be ...".
