How to use Have got in English

Hey guys, how are you? Today I am going to teach you how to use Have got correctly.

 

Positive form:

I have got (I’ve got) a house;

You have got (You’ve got) a car;

* He / She / It has got (He’s / She’s / It’s got) a house.

Negative form:

They have not got (Haven’t got) a TV;

We have not got (Haven’t got) a flat;

*He / She / It has not got (He / She / It hasn’t got) a bike.

Question and answer form:

Have I got a car? Yes I have / No, I haven’t.

Has he got a book? Yes he has / No, he hasn’t.

 

  • You can use Have got instead of have for possession.

E.g. I’ve got a flat = I have a flat. (There is the same meaning);

  • Have got is more commom in the United Kingdom (UK). Have is more used in the United States of America (USA) and international English.
