    Passiv

    Hello,

    would you please explain me the difference of this two sentences?

    1.) I was sitting quietly in the garden and I got stunk by a bee.
    2.) I was sitting quietly in the garden and I was stunk by a bee.

    When is it possible to use "get" instead of "to be" in a passive sentence?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dany

    First this, Dany:

    <Would you please explain to me the difference between these two sentences?

    or:

    <Would you please explain the difference between these two sentences?

    And this:

    "stung" and not "stunk"

    Whenever something happens to you and you see someone or something else as the doer, you can use "get" or "to be".

    Hello M56,

    Thanks for your help and corrections.
    I think, that I never learn it to use "to me"

    Kind regards,
    Dany
