GET and TAKE
English learners sometimes get confused about the usage of the verbs get and take because it’s not always easy to decide which one to use. Therefore, we need to be very careful when we use them.
We can say that take means to hold or pick something, while get has meanings: obtain, reach, arrive.
Besides, both verbs form numerous collocations, idioms and phrases which we need to learn by heart just like any other vocabulary.
Here are some examples:
He took some cheese out of the fridge.
He always takes shower in the evening.
John took me to the cinema.
I got my salary on Friday.
I’m afraid I haven’t got your email.
I always get up at 7.
