1. Welcome to the Course: Hi, everyone. How you going? My name is Guy A. And welcome to this class. Sorry. In this class I am going to be talking to about the get because I know that it's a commonly confused and a lot of students have some difficulty learning this Ferb because there are so many different ways we can use it and it could be a big tricky to understand how to reproduce it in conversation. So in this class, you are going to be learning the three Golden rules for the book get in order to understand how to correctly structure these in a sentence. When you're having conversations in English as well as this, we're also going to be going or heard the first comment, a phrase a loves with the get as well as the most common idioms with verbal get. Now, in all of the lessons that we're going to do in these class, it's going to need your participation. So there's gonna be lots of active exercises that are going to get you to understand how to pronounce the and how to hear it in context so you can get used to identifying the verb based on the situation because a lot of the time the situation we use the verb get determines the meaning off the bird. So this is going to be a really handy exercise for you. Now, at the end of this class, of course, like all of my other classes here, you're gonna have some exercises that I do encourage you to go ahead and dirt just to help you revise the material. And, you know, the things that were blood here in this class, but startup plus you. 2. My 3 best tips about learning the verb get: Now let's go through some tips on how to make learning the book get a little bit easier for you guys. So I want to go over three main tapes, three main things that you could do to make this process a little bit easier and less. Oh my God, it's really confusing. So we know the verb get has heaps of different meanings, hates of alternatives. So the first thing I want to tell you to do is be selective. Now. This is a rule that applies with anything you're learning with in regards to English, especially obviously vocabulary. There's a lot there is, and endless amount off words and ways you can use the verb get, so just choose what's relevant to you at the time off learning. For example, If you are living in Australia on, you are working in a restaurant and you know he's OK. I really need to improve my English for learning in a restaurant, and I want along the verb get. It would be wiser for you to understand how to use the verb get in the context off working in a restaurant instead all, for example, teaching an English class okay, So in this tip, I want you to be selective. Okay? Just choose the way off using the verb. Get the phrase verbs. Forget all the medians. Forget specific to the context. It is that you find yourself okay. Whether it's studying for your isles exam, it's traveling. It's having, you know, a friendly conversation. This will make the learning process a lot easier. And it will also help you to relate better to you know, the words that you're learning because you will see that there is and made for there is use And you weren't feel so overwhelmed by lots of new words or, in this case, alternatives to the verb get case. Er, be selective now, the next thing that I want to share with you ease about chunk learning Now, chunk learning is the idea. Specifically, when you're learning vocabulary when you know is a dark just learn the single word. So in this case, learning the verb get Don't just learn the word get meaning, for example, receive. That's great because you establish, you know, a definition off the word and some level of understanding. But then when you take that single word and you put it in a sentence or you put it in a paragraph, you can feel a bit like, OK, I know the word, but what comes next and what comes after So chunk learning is about learning in context were what words go together when we're using you know the verb, get to me and receive What's the proposition? What should be the position off this verb? Where is the subject? How do I make it a negative? OK, this takes your learning off vocabulary. Just that one step for that, and it really helps you truly absorb the information a lot better on be able to reproduce it in conversation with a lot more ease because you spend less time thinking and calculating with your translation because you've already learned a chunk with the verb get . Now the 30 that I want to share with you is repeat one off. The classic mistakes I see so many of my students make is they get really excited that they've let hates of vocabulary and they've got a fantastic textbook, you know, with words and meanings. And after one or two days, they kind of forget about the textbook or you know it gets stuffed under the bed or left in their bag, and after a week, you know they have the same complaint. Guy, I write my words. I learned my words, and then I just keep forgetting them. So that's where this tip comes into play. You need to repeat constantly. Repeat and read over and read over, sir, that the information gets lodged in your long term memory. It's like anything we do in life. I mean, if you do an action once you can say or K, I kind of get it, but I I don't exactly remember. But if you do it 100 times, it becomes second nature, and it's the exact same thing when you're learning vocabulary or you're learning the get so repeat, repeat, repeat. And this process is made a lot easier when you apply the other tip. When we talk about that, just context the learning. So just learning for the particular situation on being selective, you know there's 100 variations of the verb get you choose five because you work in a restaurant and you just need those five meanings. So to repeat these five words is a lot easier for you. Quite manageable on a day to day context. So these are my three tips to learning the verb get. We've got chump learning. Be selective and remember to repeat. Thanks, guys. 3. Golden rule 1 - Grammar Explanation: moving on to the golden rules for understanding the verbal get. Now, this is our first golden rule. Now, when we use the verb get plus a direct object, you can have three possible meanings to buy, shoot all pertain or to receive Okay, verb plus direct object three possible meanings by obtain and receive. Okay, let's have a look at some examples for you. So I can say Yesterday I went shopping and I bought an amazing pair off shoes and in this case, I used the example bought. However, I can also use the vote get and I can say, yesterday I went shopping and I got an amazing pair of shoes. I also got a jacket on a pair of pants. It was a pretty good day. Okay, so this is how we use the get meaning to buy. Now, The third way that we can use the verb get used to mean obtain now, Generally, the verb obtained means to to receive something because often effort that you put in. So I think about you know, university education. I can say I obtained a certificate in teaching or I obtained my degree from Latrobe University. Now instead using al verb get. I can say I got a certificate in teaching or I got my degree from the Truth university. Okay, so obtain eat can be confused with the verb receive because you do receive something. But it's because of an effort that you've done either because you've worked really hard or you studied really hard weaken generally also use it at work. I can say I got a bonus because off the hard work I put in this month, instead of saying I have attained a bonus because of the hard work I put in this month. Now moving on to the third way we canoes Albert get when it's followed by a direct object. Now, in this case, we can use it to mean receive, for example, I can say for my birthday I received great present. It was a holiday to Australia, using the verb get I can say for my birthday I got a great present. It was a holiday to Australia. I can also say yesterday I got a Kindle reader from my husband or my sister got a great present from her mother. OK, so these are the three ways that we can use the verb get when it's followed by a direct object it means receive all pertain or by 4. Golden rule 1 - Listening Exercise: So why don't we practice by doing a little bit? Often exercise just to see if you can start to recognize the three ways we can use the verb get when it's followed by a direct object. Now I am going to read a short paragraph to you all. And inside this paragraph, I have used the verb Get to me, receive, obtain and by now I just want you to listen to what I'm saying. And as you're listening, trying to see if you can understand the context of what is being said, and if you can start to identify the different meanings off the verb get based on the situation off the sentence. Now, after this initial video, you could go ahead and access the exercises in the attachments. And there you will find this paragraph that I have said exactly as is with a little exercise so you can see if you could remember the different ways I've used the verb get. So let's get started. I'm over the moon because I finally graduated from university and I got a degree in marketing. I have to admit it was a tough five years, but when I finally got that piece of paper. I knew that it was totally worth it. And I would actually do it all over again if I had to. To celebrate me and my family went out to dinner all together to my favorite restaurant on I got a present. It was a computer. I had told my parents not to get me anything, but they insisted and I was really happy. They did so. All right, guys, there. That's the end off al listening exercise. Go ahead, have a look at the attachments and see if you can distinguish how I used the verb get in this reading. 5. Golden rule 2 - Grammar Explanation: moving on to golden rule Number two. Now, when we use the verb get plus a place or a time expression, it means to arrive or reach a destination. Get plus a place or time expression means to arrive or reach a destination. Let's have a look at some examples, so I can say I arrived to work at five o'clock or I can say I got to work at five o'clock. I arrived at the cinema when it was dark, or I got to the cinema when it was dark. Having a look at now the word reach, I can say I reached the top off the mountain after one hour or I got to the top off the mountain after one hour. Another example, we could say to mean Reach these, for example. I reached the finish line in five minutes, or I got to the finish line in five minutes. So remember out second Golden Rule for the verb. Get these. When we use the get plus a place or eight time expression, it means a rise or reach. Let's have a look now at Alvis in the egg section 6. Golden rule 2 - Listening Exercise: moving on to the listening. Okay, so I just try to understand how I'm using the verb. Get to me. Arrive all reach in this text yesterday Waas Such a great day because I went hiking with my husband. I was a little dubious about how I would find the experience, but I managed to get to the top of the mountain in an hour. It was actually perfect because we got to the hiking ground at around five o'clock. So by it seeks oclock were at the top watching the sunrise. We got home quite late that night because we decided to spend the whole afternoon there. I actually became quite addicted to hiking and I wanted to get to the top of the next peak . I think I've changed my mind about hiking. It's actually quite fun. I guys, sir, that is the end off your listening section. Go ahead and try out the exercise 7. Golden rule 3 - Grammar Explanation: Okay, So moving on to our third and final Golden rule for the get we are going to look at the verb get meaning become in the sense off, showing a change of state. So when the verb get is followed by an objective, it means become, in the sense off, changing off the state off something. Okay, let's have a look at some examples, and I do warn you that here there is a little exception that I will go through at the very end off the examples. So I can say, for example, it's a becoming colder now that winter is arriving or without get Aiken say it's getting colder now the winter is arriving. I can also say, Oh, I'm becoming hungry. It's always still time or I'm getting hungry. It's almost in a time. So in these two examples, I have used the verb get to show us a state off change where we can use the book become now . The exception I wanted to speak to a bad is when we're talking about, for example, professions. Now I can say in a regular sentence. I became a teacher in a 2013 and you say OK, you used the word become so you can use the verb get instead and say I got a teacher at in 2013 Now this is not true because we only use the verb get to me become when we're expression estate of change. Now me becoming a teacher in 2013 doesn't show any change. It just shows an accomplishment or a title. So in this case, I cannot use the verb get cannot say I got a teacher in 2013. I got a lawyer in 2000 and 15. In this case, when we're talking about our profession and our title, we need to use the become only when we are describing change a slow change or a transition from morning to night from cold to hot from no hungry, too hungry or any feeling that is, for example, not sad. Too sad. Then there is a progression. There is a change so we can use the verb get. I'm gifting hungry. I'm getting tired. I'm getting angry. Okay, guys. So when we use the verb to get plus and objective, we can use it to me become meaning a state off change 8. Golden rule 3 - Listening exercise: Okay, so moving on to Alvis. Any exercise now in this inner golden rule, we have only spoken about how to use the get to replicate one the which is the book become so obviously after this listening exercise, you don't have your same exercise as in the other classes to try Teoh. Guess which would get these brick presenting because there's only one word. So I just want you to try to listen and best understand how to use the verb get in context when we're talking about become and change. Okay, so let's have a look at it. It's always summer now, and the days are starting to get warmer and longer. Which is so lovely because winter was pretty long this year, I actually noticed I'm stuck to get quite tired. Now that summer is approaching, it must have something to do with the beautiful summer breeze and the sunny days. The best thing about Sama is that people tend to get happier on comma, even in the big cities. I also tend Teoh, no get as sick as I do when it's winter time, I think because my body calms down and I sleep into holiday mode. All right, so that is the end of all this sneak section. Were you able to understand in context how we were using the verb get? Let's have a look at our next lesson. 9. The Most common Phrasal verbs with GET: I guys. So now that you've learned the three golden rules and you've understood how to learn the verb get, let's have a look at some of the most common phrase all verbs when we're using this. Now, I assure you that these are actual phrase of herbs that we use in everyday conversation. Okay, so you're already implying selective learning when you're listening to this section, I'm going to go through 10 phrase of herbs with you. I'm going to explain their meaning on put them in some example sentences. At the end of this class, we are gonna have a few exercises. So you've got a great exercise for pronunciation. It's called a shudder technique exercise. And here you're going to have the chance to listen to the way I pronounce the verb get in, you know, with the phrase of the context and repeat it so you can try to perfect your pronunciation as well as your intonation now attached to the resource section. You're also going to find a list off these fraser verbs that I'm going through now, as with all other content in the course. But just so you know, as you're listening, you don't have to stress to write them all down, have provided it for you guys with the phrase a verb and the example sentence. So you can use that when your repeat learning and trying to memorize in practice all of them. So let's have a look and get Saturday at all, Fraser bulbs phrase over. One is get up to get up to now. This means simply due to do something, and we use it a lot when we're asking questions. Generally, when we want to instigate small talk, we'll just start a conversation with someone so I can say a simple sentence like, Hey, what did you get up to on the weekend or what you getting up to today? As a reply, I can say I didn't get up too much and pretty much just stayed a harm. Or last weekend I got up to lots of things. I went out, I went to the beach and I had dinner with my family. So afraid of Herb get up to means to do, and it's more commonly used in our questions or trying to start a little bit off small talk . The next phrase of a prison phone number to ease. Get on weak get on with and this means toe. Have a good relationship with someone. You're very similar to that person. You have a lot in common and you can speak and hang out for ages. So to get on with means toe have that good relationship with somebody. I'll give you an example. I get on with my husband really well, because I really similar or I don't get on with some off my friends. The question I could say. Do you get on with your classmates? Okay, so this is how we use the phrase will verb get on with on. We could use it in all contexts in questions, in negative sentences, and it just means to have a good relationship with someone. Phrase of up. Number three. He's get rid off, get read off the phrase of up. Get rid of means throwaway. Liberate yourself from something we can use it for birth, a physical object or even and metaphorical object. Maybe it's an emotion or an idea, so I can say it's spring and I'm doing lots of spring cleaning, so I have to get rid off many objects. I no longer need. I can say, You know, lately I'm feeling a little negative. I need to get rid off these negative emotions so I can feel strong and powerful again. Get rid off means to throw something away, to liberate yourself off something birth in the physical context or a metaphorical context . When we're talking about feelings and emotions moving on to Number four, get across, get across, which means to explain something very well. So I can say I have a great Italian teacher. She really gets across to me and I understand were totally meaning. She really explains her opinion very well, or you know what she's teaching me, and I'm able to easily understand her. We often hear this phrase over in a question, and you may hear teachers or people at work saying, Am I getting across to you? I'm trying to explain this to you, but, um, I getting across meaning I explaining what I want to explain. Well, are you understanding what I'm saying now? We often use this phrase of what will be what I express frustration. You can say I've tried and I've tried, but I just can't get across to for meaning. I'm trying really hot, but I can't make her understand well, what I want for to understand. I feel like I'm not being understood. So it's not by any means. A rude phrase over it doesn't mean that you can only use it in particular contexts. But we also use this phrase or verb when we want to express a sense of frustration like an exclamation by saying, Oh my God, I'm trying so hard. But are you getting a my getting across to you? Are you understanding what I want to say? OK, so the verb phrase a verb get across means to understand something well or to ask if somebody is understanding us. Well, next stop is the phrase of get on with. And no, I haven't made a mistake. I know that we did this phrase of of at the beginning of a list. In this case, it has another meaning, and it is a super common meaning. It means to continue doing something to proceed in working towards something so I can say, Oh my God, look at the time. It's so late. I need to get on with my work. So I need to stop looking at Facebook and talking, and I need to continue with my tasks because I have a deadline and need to get on with my job. Another way, we'll know another way. But another example can be your studying for I else and you say, Oh, well, I have a lesson with guy in an hour. I need to get on with my essay because it's still no finished. So get on with means to continue doing something next. Fraser, where we're looking at, is get at get at now. I want to explain it to you in a particular context when we use it as a question meaning when we want to ask what somebody is implying what they're trying to say when we are in a Ingles argument now, not a heated argument, even in a discussion. But it's it's when there isn't understanding. And when points are being made clearly and one person, obviously the person using the phrase over feeling a little bit confused so I can say, OK, I hear what you're saying, but what are you getting at? What are you getting at? Meaning What do you mean? What are you trying to say, What are you implying now? We can use it to ways to mean this. I can use it to genuinely ask you. What are you implying? I'm actually confused. Can you speak a little slower and tell me your point of view again? Or I use it in a defensive offended way to me. How dare you say that! You're not allowed to say something like that to me. And in this case, I'm quite upset. So I can say what you getting at? How dare you say that to me? Meaning, What are you trying to say? Why are you trying toe offend me? And we use it as a way to or provoke the other person a little bit or to try to defend ourselves? So get at we use in this context, okay? This is the context. I'm explaining it to you because it's the most common way that we do use it. Okay, So to get at meaning to imply. But ask what somebody is saying to us what they mean by what they're saying. Next phrase above is get round, Get round. Now, this is a phrase of that we often use when we're talking about procrastination or being lazy, I can say I I really got to get around to cleaning my bedroom. It means to finally do something after a long period of time. So I can say, for example, all I've put so much free time now because I'm spending a lot of time at home so I can finally get around to reading that book I've been waiting to read. Okay, so I finally found the time to be able to do that particular activity. Or I can't wait for the summer holidays because I'll be able to get round to cooking every day because I love cooking. So phrase of of Get round means to finally find the time to be able to do something. Next. One, we've got these get together, get together. And this pretty much means just to meet up with people, to to see people and hang out with, um, I can say, for example, I can't wait to get together with my family for a beautiful dinner. Or next Monday I'm getting together with my husband and we are going through the movies. So get together means to meet up with people, whether they're friends or families or colleagues and spend time together, get together and the very last way that I'm going to teach you about using the get in a phrase over. He's get on and get off. And I know that's all of you going all the guy we already know that phrase over, and I'm sure that you do. But surprisingly, Edie's the most mistaken one, maybe because of its simplicity, its often overworked. But it's generally because there is an exception. When we're looking at get on and get off before I dump in, I will give you a general explanation. The Fraser verb get on means to enter a vehicle and get off means to exit the vehicle. And generally this rule would apply for all vehicles except a car. We do not say I get on a car or I get off a car. This is the exception, and this is the common mistake, so I can say examples like I get on a bus, I get off a bus, I get on a plane, I get off a plane, I get on a train or I get off the train. But when we're looking at a car. I have to say I get into a car or I get out off a car. OK, that's the main thing. I wanted to go over so I can say Yesterday at five o'clock I got onto the plane because I was travelling to London and I got off at 12 PM Older. That isn't the exact destination time. It is an example. And when we're looking at a car, I can say I get into my car at 2 p.m. To drive to work and only get out off my car at around 6 p.m. Okay, so that's how we use the phrase over. But get on and get off I guys. So that's it for this list off 10 off The most common phrase of herbs with the verb Get on , Please do have a look at the attached three sources so you can go through this list and help you repeat them on a little bit more. 10. Phrasal verbs Pronunciation Exercise: Now let's move on to our pronunciation exercise. What we're gonna do now is a shadow technique. I So I am going to say the phrase of herbs that we have just learned. I will repeat the phrase over twice and between each repeating there will be a paused. Now, in that pause, I want to you to say the phrase will book out loud and tried to copy how I say it. I want you to copy my pronunciation, my intonation as well as my word stress. Okay, so we need lots of active participation here. So let's have a look at our first phrase over. Get up to get up to get on with. Get on weeks, get rid off, get rid off, get across, get across, get at get at, get around to get round to get together Get together, Get on, get on, get off, get off! All right, guys said that is the end of your shadow technique exercise. Feel free to do this more than once, because once you often feel like oh, I don't sound that good. I need a little bit more practices. This is designed for you to repeat and repeat over and over again 11. The Most Common Idioms with GET: Now let's move on to the most common idioms with the the get like we did in our previous lesson. Normal. Looking at the appraisal verbs, I'm going to go through the list off the idioms. I'm going to say the medium, and I'm also going to explain it as well as give you some sentences. An example. So you understand how to accurately used the medium in context. Let's get started. Idiom number one. Get a lice, get a life. Now we can use this video in two ways. One is a nice way, and the second is not so nice way in essence at birth have the same meaning. It just means come on, stop worrying about stupid, unimportant things and just get focused up stressing about the unimportant. So in a nice way, I can say, Come on, just, you know, get a life. It's OK. Everything will be fine. You don't need to worry about it or in a not so nice way I could say Get a life. You're so annoying. Two very different examples, pretty much with the same meaning. Now, in the first example, you can see that I was quite empathetic and sympathetic, and I accompanied this expression with words like, Don't worry, you'll be OK Author, gentle in the approach. And in this case, I'm telling them in a nice way not to worry about what's happening in the second example was quite forceful. I just you said an explanation. I said, Get a life. You're so annoying. I even insulted them a little bit. So in this case, I am telling them that what they're worrying about and what they're thinking about isn't important. And they're wasting their time. And I'm making. And I'm wanting to make the other person feel quite small, quite insignificant. And you can hear this because I haven't used empathy or sympathy. And I've bean not aggressive in my tone. I've got a loud voice and even an exclamation mark. OK, so it can be used in two different contexts. And if you know this is said to you and you feel like or what does it mean? It's difficult to understand just from the medium itself. You do have to look at the context around it, so I do have a look like that, explained the level of sympathy, empathy, the accompanying words with it because that will better help you understand in what way you know. Are you using this medium or in what way hasn't being used towards you? The next idiom is Get a Lord off one's feet. Get a Lord off one's feet. It's quite a long medium, and it means sit down, relax and forget about the rest of the world. So I can say I love Sundays because I sit down on the couch and I just get a Lord off my feet. Meaning I love some days because I can sit down. I can relax, and I can forget about the outside world. Now I know that when you're looking at your examples in, you know your your pdf, you say you'll see, get a load off one's feet now one eat it stands for any person. In my example, I said, Get a load off my feet. I Canosa's I get alert off your fate. She should get a load off her feet, so it just depends on who we're speaking about. So this medium against the Lord off one's fate means sit down, relax and forget about the outside world. So the next idiom we're going to look at is to get in someone's face to get in someone's face, and this means to provoke someone to push someone so that we get a reaction out of them. So I can say. And yesterday at school, my teacher was really getting in my face because she kept asking me hips of difficult questions and she knew I hadn't done the homework, so it was impossible for me to answer them. So to get in someone's face is when we personally try to provoke someone or we want to complain that somebody is doing that action to me, I could say also I was driving the car and there was so much traffic and the girl driving next to me was really getting in my face because she kept hooting her poi. She was really provoking me to get angry because she's very impatient. So to get in someone's face means to Privert someone in order to get every action out of them, get into something, get into something now, the idiom, get into something mains, to really dedicate yourself to something that you thoroughly enjoy that you completely enjoy. So I can say I've just started a fantastic new season on Netflix, and I'm really getting into it because I love the characters and the story line is intriguing. Another away that I can say it is. I'm really getting into the book I'm reading at the marble. It's a little long, but I really like the way it's being written, So I'm really getting into it. So to get into something means to really enjoy something to fairly immerse yourself in it. Where that's all you want to do is that one particular thing. Next video is Get on someone's case, Get on someone's case Now. This is similar to get in someone's face, however, it has a slightly different meaning. Now get on someone's case means to criticize somebody to pick on somebody. Okay, getting someone's face means to provoke so you can perverted many different ways. Okay, you can be just by looking at somewhat all by verbally saying something. But in this case, get on someone's case means strictly to criticize them, meaning to tell them you know, things that you think of wrong about them, or about what they had doing. So I can say another example again, talking about the school so we can use it as a comparison. My teacher was really getting on my case about my essay. I tried so hard and really studied for but she peaking at ALS. The things that were wrong, she really got on my case. So here I'm saying she criticized me. She told me repeatedly everything that was wrong with it, and she didn't tell me anything nice. So she really got on my case. So the idea get on someone's case against someone can be replaced by my your her means to criticize someone. Next medium we are looking at is get really get to Really, This is a great expression that we use so often in English. It's great because as well as using it in a sentence, you can use a pie itself. So it's easier to remember, and it just means check into reality. Are you being serious? Oh my God. What are you saying? We use it as an exclamation. So, for example, if you go shopping and you find a pair of shoes that you love and you ask the lady or how much to the issues cost and she replies 400 year. You think I got that absurd? You can say get Really? That's a ridiculous price if you want to be a little bit rude. Obviously, we tend to keep this information to ourselves. But just understand in an exaggerated context how we can use in the meaning off this idiom . It's to say, Oh my God, get serious. Okay, Another way that I can use it is if I'm talking to my mother and she says, Okay, tomorrow we have so many things to do. You need to wake up at six oclock. We have to clean the house. We have to go shopping and you get really, it's someday I want to sleep in. Okay, so it means check back into reality. Oh, my God, No way. Get riel now. Generally get Really. It could be years in birth, a positive and a negative context. I mean, we wouldn't necessarily actually I changed what I want to say. We wouldn't have all use it when we're speaking to have supervisors or our boss at work after they've given us an order or explained a piece of information because it comes across as disrespectful because it's almost like we are questioning their authority, saying, Oh my God, what you said is a dork. That's ridiculous. Get riel, as if I'm going to do that. However, if we're speaking socially to have friends or to our family and we want to tease them or were making jokes or were speaking lightheartedly, we can definitely use the expression get riel without any problems. If, on the other hand, we are in an argument or we want to really tell somebody, what they're saying is ridiculous, and there is no way that you will agree to do a certain thing, you can very confidently use the expression. Get riel with a different turn off voice, maybe a little bit more aggressing, and in this case is a little bit rueda. It's a polite way to be route more or less. Okay, so get riel. It just is an expression to mean or my God get checked into reality. Are you serious? The next idiom, one looking at ease. Get the message will get the picture, get the message or picture, and you can use either one. That birth equally is common just means understand. So I could take guys, are you getting the picture about how to use get in conversation. Meaning Are you understanding how to use? Get in conversation? I could say I don't I don't get the picture. I don't get the message. I don't understand what you're saying. So get the picture or get the message simply mean to understand, to question If somebody understands all to say that you don't understand something, next we have the medium get with a get with it Now this again has to slight variations of how we can use it. We can mean a quite, you know, straight forward to me. Hurry up and I can say Get with it, We've gotta go. It's five o'clock. What are you doing? In this case, it just means hurry up. Or we can use it a little more metaphorically when we're speaking to somebody for having a conversation with them and we realized they're not getting it. They're not getting the picture and they're a little slower. Maybe you see that they're distracted or they're thinking off something else. And you can say What are you doing? Get with it like we're speaking. Come on, get with the program. Get with it. Meaning come back to our conversation and speed up your mental process off understanding what we're speaking about. So we use it when we want to remind someone or tell someone. Hey, you're not really paying attention. Come back to our conversation. Get with it. Okay, so get with it. Can mean hurry up. We've gotta go. Or I realize you're not paying attention. Come back for good so we can continue our conversation. So next idiom, we have these. Get lost. Get lost. This is Oh, my God! In all the movies, in all the Teeley Siri's you guys should be watching. You should have heard and notices a medium many, many times. It just means go away in a semi rude way So I can say get lost. You are so annoying. Leave me alone. Go away. I want nothing to do with you. I had a fight with my sister and she told me to get lost. I can't believe it. That serve erred. It's not technically the rudest thing to say. It's actually the most polite way before, we would use a swear word. So you can say this in a context when you're having an argument with somebody or your feeling, Really? You know, annoyed. Do not use get lost to your bus or maybe to a colleague, or to somebody that you don't want to offend. But if you have enough confidence with the person forces the you know, a friend or family member and you can say it with enough ease that doesn't come across route. But they get the picture that you want to be left alone. Then you can use it in this context. So get lost means to tell another person to go away. And our last idiom is get a kick out off something, get a kick out of something, and this means to thoroughly enjoy something. So, for example, I could say I really get a kick out off going for a run early in the morning. I really enjoy it. Makes me feel energized and positive for the whole day ahead. Get it kicked out of something. Or I can say my best friend gets a kick out of teasing me. She thinks it's really funny and she enjoys doing it.
