What's your morning routine? If you are not a 'morning person', waking up and getting ready for work/school can be a real challenge. Perhaps you are an 'early bird', a person who feels better and has more energy in the morning. If so, getting ready to face the day is no problem!

Get / Become

Average: 3.7 (74 votes)

The word get has many different meanings in English, such as 'receive'. However, another very common meaning is also 'become'.

For example: “I’m getting cold” means the same as “I’m becoming cold”
The only real difference is that get is more informal and popular to use.

The structure is: GET + ADJECTIVE.
