Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー
GET (to the office)   到着する

Explanation

  • Get can mean “arrive”.

    Be Careful! For most places, we use the expression “get TO”, as in “get TO Yokohama”, “get TO school”, and “get TO the station”; however, we do NOT use “to” before the words “home”, “here”, and “there”.
  • get には、到着するという、意味があります。

    注意: 「〜に着く」と言いたい場合、get TO Yokohama, get TO school, get TO the station のように、たいていは、目的地の前に to をつけます。ただし、home, here, there に関しては、to はつけません。

GET (to the office)

examples

  1. I like to get to the office early so that I can get home early.
  2. We never got to the party. The car broke down on the way.
  3. (passenger to flight attendant)
