One Point English Lesson: Get to + Verb

Michael Happy English! 4 Comments

When you have the chance to do something, and often something that you have wanted to do, you can use get to + verb:

  • I got to see some of my friends in Tokyo last October.
  • Jack said he got to eat delicious food all over Spain.
  • The train shouldn’t be crowded now. I’m sure we will get to sit down.
  • They were only in NYC for five days, but they got to see many things.

It’s also possible to use hope + get to when talking about the future

  • I hope I get to see some of my friends in Tokyo next week.
  • Jack said he hopes he gets to eat delicious food all over Spain on his next trip there.
  • The train shouldn’t be crowded now. I hope we get to sit down.

    When we have someone do something, we use get + to
    for example
    I get my brother to open the door. I got my brother to bring pizza.
    I am not sure If it is that one you’re asking about.
