GET USED TO (REVISION): meaning and examples

Good morning everybody,

Today we continue with Lucas's question, by revising another Daily Vitamin originally sent in September of 2004.

In English, the Spanish verb acostumbrarse is to get used to something or to get used to doing something.

Following is an example:

Example 1:
I still haven't got used to these news shoes.

This is a good expression to know because it's quite frequent. Unfortunately, it's often confused with used to (see yesterday's Daily Vitamin). "Used to" is used to talk about a habitual activity in the past ("I used to play football every Saturday with my friends) and get used to means to become accustomed to. They are very different.

Thanks to Lucas, again, for his question.

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.

Enjoy your day.
