Hi ellen,
That's a difficult question. 'Get' can be used in so many different ways that I can't explain them all here. My advice is that every time you read or listen to an expression or a phrase with 'get,' focus on the meaning and take time to think about what it means in the context. We have a Grammar snack coming soon that will explain when we use 'Have to...'  so keep checking the Grammar snacks section over the coming weeks. 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Hi nizan1oren! It's a kind of device used to stretch shoes and help them keep their shape. Have you tried the other games too?

Why "get a headache" instead of "have a headache"

Doesn't it depends on the context? "I will get a headache" and "I already have a headache"

Hi sobmdpteen,

Yes, you're exactly right. "get a headache" describes the process of the headache starting. For example,  "It's so hot in here, I'm getting a headache". = a headache is starting.

After that, we usually use "have a headache".  For example: "I don't feel very well. I have a headache."

Hope that clears up the confusion!

I really like British council but there are a few games, there are just 4 games. I played this game and i liked but i wish there were more thrilling games from which we can have fun and learn at the same time..because this game sounds a little bit boring to me, just a little bit. So i think you should ad more exiting games.
NO OFFENDS , JUST MY OPINION

Hi Miley,
You're right, it would be great to have more games on the site. But, I think you've missed page 2 of our Games. What sort of games would you like to see on LearnEnglish Teens?
All for now, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)
