    Question get

    Hi there!

    I've got a doubt.

    Talking about something I'm getting better and better at, I said: "I'm getting a professional" meaning "i'm becoming a professional", was that correct?

    If not, was it understandable?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, if you told anyone you were getting a professional, they would take that to mean you were going to employ a professional rather than become one.

    You could say you were getting to be as good as a professional.
