Odpowiedź English

We often use have got rather than have alone. So you can say:
rozpocznij naukę
We’ve got a new car. Or We have a new car. Ann has got two sisters. Or Ann has two sisters.

We use have got or have for illnesses, pains etc.:
rozpocznij naukę
I’ve got a headache. Or I have a headache.

In questions and negative sentences
rozpocznij naukę
there are three possible forms.

Have you got any money?
rozpocznij naukę
I haven’t got any money.

Do you have any money?
rozpocznij naukę
I don’t have any money.

Have you any money? (less usual)
rozpocznij naukę
I haven’t any money. (less usual)

Has she got a car?
rozpocznij naukę
She hasn’t got a car.

Does she have a car?
rozpocznij naukę
She doesn’t have a car.

Has she a car? (less usual)
rozpocznij naukę
She hasn’t a car. (less usual)

When have means ‘possess’ etc., you cannot use continuous forms (is having/are having etc.):
rozpocznij naukę
I have/I’ve got a headache. (not ‘I’m having’)

For the past we use had (usually without ‘got’):
rozpocznij naukę
Ann had long fair hair when she was a child. (not ‘Ann had got’)

In past questions and negative sentences we normally use did/didn’t:
rozpocznij naukę
Did they have a car when they were living in London? I didn’t have a watch, so I didn’t know the time.

Have (but but ‘have got’) is also used for many actions and experiences.
rozpocznij naukę
For example: Goodbye! I hope you have a nice time. Mary had a baby recently.

breakfast, dinner, a cup of coffee, a cigarette etc.

a bath, a shower, a swim, a rest, a party, a holiday, a nice time etc.

an accident, an experience, a dream etc.

a look (at something), a chat (with somebody)

a baby (=give birth to a baby)

difficulty, trouble, fun
