Hi, Anglika my good teacher
Can't I use 'get' ?
Please explain so that I may make correct sentences.
Avoid "get" if you can. It is often a lazy way of saying something. At school we were given exercises to replace "get" with more specific and precise verbs and therefore I replace it wherever I can.
