How do we use GET in the causative?

There are a variety of English grammar patterns that are tested on the TOEIC® exam. Causative verbs, such as get, often appear in Part V and Part VI. 

We use the pattern get someone to do. This has the meaning of “persuade” or “convince.”

  • Jack got the boss to ok casual Fridays for the summer.
  • I think it won't be easy to get the manager to agree to a salary increase
  • Mr. Bennett finally got the client to sign the contract.

👉 Keep in mind the best way to remember this grammar or any grammar or vocabulary in English is to take the word or phrase, write it in a sentence that's true for you or true in your world, and then memorize your sentences.

👉 You can even take your sentences and write them in the comments below. I would love to see your examples.
