Are you using the verb “arrive” correctly?
On today’s Tear Up Your Textbook Tuesday, learn when to (and when not to) use the verb “arrive” with native speakers!
For a native English speaker, “arrive” is not always the most natural-sounding word to use. It probably fits best in formal situations, such as a job interview or a speech.
Instead of “When did you arrive?” a native speaker might ask “When did you get here?” or “When did you get in?” Both mean the same thing as “arrive”, but are more common.
How can you use “get” instead of arrive?
