Can you distinguish between "be" a member and "become" a member?


Nope, there is no way to do this in Turkish in this sentence.


Is the above sentence some kind of meme in Turkish society? Tried googing"Üye," searching for a picture for a flashcard and discovered a number of images where "Üye olmak istiyorum" figures a lot. It looks like the creators of this course might be enjoying another cool inside joke that would be great to share.

I want to become a member.

Correct other English answer accepted by Duo.

Be & become (verb)


Is there a rule when 'bir' is used? Here it isn't but in "are you in a group?" I left it out and was marked incorrect.
