Hi ! Difference between “to get” and “to receive”: 💡Very slight difference 💡”To receive” is more formal while “to get” more informal and general 🕯Definitions : 💫To get : To obtain /to fetch Example: I get a water bottle every afternoon from Ameena’s shop. 💫To receive: When you are being given something or someone’s giving it to you. Example: Our hearts receive your warnings. ( William Shakespeare) Hope we got it clear now 💃🕺 Good luck 👍🍀
