    getting

    Can I say this in English?
    1. Getting betrayed/cheated in such a way makes me sad.
    2. Getting advantages in this manner wouldn't be fair.
    3. Getting informed so late speaks volumes.

    Re: getting

    In 1 and 3, "Being" would be a better first word.
    2 is OK although "Getting an advantage" sounds a little more natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
