Hi,

Get used to means that you are accustomed to something -you find something usual.
Get held to would mean that you would have to stay with something. You could get held to a promise meaning that you couldn't break that promise.

If you go to another country, you will have to get used to (or get accustomed to) the weather in that country. After a few months, you can say that you've gotten/got used to the weather or that you are used to it. So getting used to refers to the process in which one becomes familiarized or habituated to doing something or living somewhere and being used to refers to such state.

We would need more context than that three word fragment, Nguyenhoai0.

Dear teachers,
You tell me the use of 'to get' and when we use the structure "to get some thing done".
Thanks
