Let’s GET going and talk about love

Hi Everyone,

Well it was a perfect summer day yesterday – sunny and breezy!

We started class with a look at the transitive verb “get”. Get is a transitive verb – it needs a direct object to complete its meaning. Get is used all the time informally such as get lost, get the door, get a life, get real, get over yourself, and do you get me? We looked at these two phone conversations between Alice and John Alice and John talk on the phone   and discovered that although conversation A is a lot more formal, conversation B sounds more casual and natural. Next we reviewed and practiced some phrasal verbs with “get” take another look at the worksheet Phrasal Verbs Get Practice  and here is a list of 15 phrasal verbs with “get”, their meanings and examples  15 Phrasal Verbs with Get
