In my previous post, I shared practice tasks with GET TO + noun combinations as well as GET + a couple infinitives, namely get to know and get to do. I wanted to help students distinguish between “to” as a preposition and “to” as part of an infinitive.
Because the verb get is used so often with a range of meanings, I decided to tackle another group of structures that can cause confusion: passive constructions with get.
In my Passive and Passive Causative with GET_handout, I placed exercises with the passive and the passive causative back to back. I didn’t include practice with the structure get (someone) to do (something) in order to avoid confusion. I felt that get + past participle and get (something) + past participle were best practiced without adding a third grammar pattern in the mix. Take a look. I think you might have high intermediate students like mine who need a few practice tasks to clarify doubts regarding get.
