I had "We get used to dancing." I thought dancing and playing were the same word. Am I missing something here?
nope. not that i know of. might be an error. report it
Not native english. Could it not be We are getting used to play?
No, it has to be "playing".
("Get used to" is a set phrase, usually followed by a noun or, as in this case, a gerund, the "-ing" form of the verb acting as a noun.)
Yeah I'm going to need a little explanation from someone in the know here.
About what specifically? Kuzoea means to get used to something, and here it's tu- "we" + -na- present + -zoea "get used to", and kucheza means to dance or to play.
Just add the name of a sport after it. Tunazoea kucheza soka = We're getting used to playing soccer. (Maybe they'd never played it before and it seemed really exotic in the beginning.)
...to play should be perfectly ok for a habitual activity
what if we wanted to say "we are used to playing", how would we say that?
