Email Service Notes 3rd November (Jesse)

Your Edited Email

This email is a short email. I just read an English book called SALAD ENGLISH PARK. I read a sentence, but I’m not sure if this sentence should have the phrase “have to” could you help me to check it and I tell me why they used “got”, instead of “get”, thanks very much. The sentence goes like this:

Bookseller: This one’s a red-hot best seller! You’ve really got to check it out.

Ok so sometimes we use “got” to mean “should”. It is a very commonly used word and it often changes its meaning. So sometimes it means “have” sometimes it means “buy”, sometimes it means “become” … it changes a lot 🙁
