Hi there,
I wanna know what does get on means?
Does it mean get going?
Also, Please tell me is this sentence correct?
Although I did all the questions correct but still I got 8 out of 10.
I wanna know the difference between Although and though. Please give some examples also. :)

Hi Naina,

Please read this: What does 'get on' mean?

Also, your question should read as follows:
I want to know (or I'd like to know) what 'get on' means. The word 'wanna' does very colloquial and doesn't exist in proper English.

As for difference between 'although' and 'though', please read this: Though vs. Although

You can find most of the answers to your questions by using the search box on our site.

Many thanks,
Torsten

I have one inquiry to make. Is is OK to use the definite article in front of the seasons of the year, i.e, winter, summer,etc. Can we say, as in the target sentence, I always get up early in the summer. Is it correct?

It is correct with or without the definite article in the UK.

In the US, at least, we would use the def article.

- I always get up early in the summer.
- In the summer, I always get up early.
- Early in the summer, I always get up.

Hi Prezbucky,

Where have you been hiding all this time? Have you only just got up?
