TO GET (BE) INTO SOMETHING: meaning and examples

Good morning. Today's expression is: to get into something. It means: to become interested in something, usually a new activity or hobby. It is very typically used in conversation and is slightly informal. Example 1 Ever since Karen was given those opera tickets, she has really got into opera music. She has even bought herself a season ticket to the opera. Example 2 I know that cricket is the national sport, but I'm afraid I just can't get into it. I've tried to watch cricket matches, but I find them so boring. Once you have got into this new activity, you can use the verbal expression to BE into it to describe your on-going enthusiasm for the activity. Example 3 Samuel is really into collecting stamps. He's been doing it for several years and he has a very impressive collection. If you have any questions about this expression, please don't hesitate to contact me. As you know, I am really into answering your questions. Have a wonderful day!
