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.
