can you send me more intermidiat level work. thank you.
It's actually more common than you'd realise - quite universal in both: colloquial forms tend to use pasives with 'get' e.g. she got asked to leave, and formal forms tend to use 'be' e.g. she was asked to leave.
Sadly common, but best avoided, in formal English.
