Σ’ έχω συνηθίσει…!


Η ‘vera_98too’ , φίλη του blog,  θέλει να μάθει τη διαφορά μεταξύ:

  • be used to (something/somebody)
  • get used to (something/somebody)
  • be accustomed to (something/somebody)
  • get accustomed to (something/somebody)
  • be familiar with (something/somebody)
  • get familiar with (something/somebody)
  • become used to (something/somebody)

Θα προσπαθήσω να παραθέσω παραδείγματα που θα αναδείξουν το κεντρικό νόημα, από πρακτικής πλευράς, αυτών των φράσεων.
