"Getting" lunch is a somewhat casual term. You may hear coworkers say "let's go get lunch later". In general it means going out to buy it somewhere, although you may hear your friend or family member say "I'm going to go get lunch" meaning they're literally going to go in the kitchen and make some food. Or eat it from the refrigerator. Often people will offer to "go get lunch" or "go get coffee" when they are getting to know somebody new, like a business partner or a date. Or when they are wanting to meet up with an old friend.
Right. But in the exercise there was no indication of what tense should be used and no English translation given. I had to select one correct variant: Ty (dostajesz, dostałeś, dostajemy etc) obiad Ty dostajesz obiad, Ty dostałeś obiad both seem correct? My point is that there shouldn't be "dostałeś" in this list to avoid confusion.
Three out of six variants are NOT present tense forms (an infinitive and two past forms), was this intentional? I'm doing Present 3, no past tense whatsoever yet, the non-present forms here are just alien inclusions with no information to a user, they might as well be pictures with kittens or flowers.
Technically, it isn't an error in the task, but those forms don't teach anything at this stage. I normally use these pick-out-of-six-verb-forms-tasks to revise the proper endings of the verb one more time while they're onscreen together, but here I'm just picking the right one with no bonus to it. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming that the task is incorrect, and I know you DL guys are probably busy doing something useful instead of dealing with tasks that seem OK. But those three non-present forms are just useless here, while six present tense forms of the same verb would be useful. Just giving you feedback in case you need it :)
Can this be used to mean, "You are in the process of obtaining some lunch somewhere" like it can in English, or does it strictly mean, "You are receiving lunch (from someone or something that is giving it to you)"? In other words, could I say, "On dostaje obiad" in answer to the question, "Gdzie idzie?" or "Co robi?"
