Hi, dear teachers
There are 66 phrasal verbs with 'get'
How many of them are the most useful/effective?

They are all useful/effective in the right context.

If you learn them, you improve your memory.

Conditional clauses: "you will improve".

Not necessarily. It could be talking about a habitual action.

If you eat lots of fruit and vegetables, you have more energy.
If you ride a bike over uneven ground every day, you fall off a lot.

I learn them but nothing happens to my memory--minor improvement, no improvement
But while you are getting down on me for my mistakes I can make progress / get down on somebody/something ?
Is it possible ?--I was being gotten down on for my mistakes

No, that's not natural.

I think you need some sleep, towcats1. I'm afraid your last three posts haven't made a lot of sense. See you tomorrow!

Lovely viewers.
If you leave your own example with 'get', I'll be incredibly happy.

I asked about the structure not about any sense.

When I'm looking for in the coursebook it doesn't mean anything, it's not important for me
When somebody tell me something--it's important and I remember it
I' m not looking for any absurd, I asked about passive
Thanks for your advice, I'll try

Incredible. Thanks for your prompt response.

Towcats, please take more care with your posts. You've posted a "thank you" three times, twice with a word missing from the end. In addition, we ask that users do not make a new post merely to say thank you. Just click the Like button on a post you found helpful. I am deleting two of your other thank you posts as they are unnecessary. I am leaving this one so you can see my corrections.
