Learn English "Get II"

We use get very often in English conversation. We can use it instead of other verbs in a natural sentence. Today let’s look at how we use “get” instead of “become.”

get                       become
got                       became
getting                  becoming

“If I don’t sleep for 7 hours at night I get cranky.” – become cranky (cranky = easy to get angry or upset)

“After drinking too many beers last night at the party, I got sleepy.” – became sleepy

“Every November it starts getting cold in Toronto.” – becoming cold
