    get used to / be used to

    Dear teachers.
    Which sentence is true:
    Don't worry. Some day you will be used to speaking English.
    Don't worry. Some day you will get used to speaking English.
    Can you explain me?

    Re: get used to / be used to

    In my opinion, "get used to" emphasizes the point in time when the person feels comfortable speaking English, while "be used to" refers to the time after that point, when the person has become comfortable and continues to be comfortable speaking English.
    For example, "I am used to speaking English" means I am comfortable with the language and have been for some period of time.
