For frequently asked questions,my points following:
1.How to use perfectly "get,take,have" in English.
just like:I had a call just now. I got some gifts.
2.How to use properly the words of "few,little," to modify non-count noun or count noun.
such as:little money,little effort,a few years
Here is some advice on how to use few and little,

Few can be used in many ways. However, think about it this way: Use few to indicate that you are talking about a small number of people or things. Here are a few examples (a small number of examples):

I gave a dinner party for a few close friends.
We had a few drinks afterwards.
Here are a few more ideas to consider.
She was silent for a few seconds.
Few people agreed with him
The past few weeks have been very pleasant.

You use little to indicate that there is only a very small amount of something.

I had little money and little free time.
I find that I need very little sleep these days.
There is little doubt that a diet high in fibre is more satisfying.
So far little progress has been made towards ending the fighting.
The pudding is quick and easy and needs little attention once in the oven.
Little is known about his childhood.
A little food would do us all some good.
I shall be away for only a very little time.
I shall need more than a little help with my English lessons.
Teachers get paid. Not much. Only a little.
Pour a little sauce over your chicken.

Here is some advice on the use of got and gotten.

Got is the past tense and past participle of get.

You use have got to say that someone has a particular thing, or to mention a quality or characteristic that someone or something has.
I’ve got a coat just like this.
She hasn’t got a work permit.
Have you got any ideas?.
Every city has got its good and bad points.
The policeman asked, “Have you got any identification?”

In informal spoken American English, people sometimes just use ‘got’.

Got a coat just like this?
She’s not got a work permit.
Got any ideas?
The policeman asked, “Got any identification?”

You use have got to when you are saying that something is necessary or must happen in the way stated.

I'm not happy with the situation, but I've just got to accept it.
There’s got to be a degree of flexibility.
You’ve got to do what you’re told.
He’s got to work harder if he wants to learn English.

In spoken American English, gotten is often used as the past participle of ‘get’. It is used to mean ‘obtained’, ‘received’, ‘become’, or ‘caused to be'’

He could have gotten his books without anyone seeing him.
He’d gotten some dust in his eyes.
His leg may have gotten tangled in a harpoon line.
I had gone to work and gotten quite a lot done.

It is also used in many phrasal verbs and phrases.

No one had gotten around to cleaning up the mess.
He must have gotten up at dawn.
We should have gotten rid of him.
She had gotten married and given birth to a child.

WARNING: You do not use have gotten to mean ‘possess’. For example, you should not say “I have gotten a headache,” or “He has gotten two sisters”.

You also do not use have gotten to mean ‘must’. For example, “I had gotten to see the Head Teacher,” does not mean ‘It was necessary for me to see the Head Teacher.’ It means ‘I had succeeded in seeing the Head Teacher.’.

In both British English and formal American English, the past participle of ‘get’ is got, not ‘gotten.’

Now here is some advice to students. Do not worry yourself about trying to understand when to use got and when to use gotten when you want to use the past participle of get. Americans will understand you if you use ‘got’ instead of ‘gotten,’ and everybody else will understand you if you use gotten instead of got.
Here is some advice on how to use "get, take, have" in English.

There are two main uses of the word get:

get 1 You use get with adjectives to mean `become'. For example, if someone gets cold, they become cold, and if they get angry, they become angry.
The boys were getting bored.
There's no point in getting upset.
From here on, it can only get better.

get 2 If you get something that you want or need, you obtain it.
I got a job at the supermarket.
The real problem was how to get enough food to stay alive.
It is impossible to get servants, so she is doing everything herself.
He had been having trouble getting a hotel room.
I asked him to get me some information.
But you can also use get to mean that you receive something or are given it.
I'm getting a bike for my birthday.
He gets a lot of letters from women.
They get a salary of $21,000 a year.

The usual use of the word take is quite different. If you take something you reach out for it and hold it. However, there is another way of using take. You can use it with nouns describing actions. Many of these combinations are common idiomatic expressions. For example, the expression take care.

To give another example, you can say `she took a shower' instead of `she showered'.

She was too tired to take a shower.

Here are some more examples:
My father took a photograph of me.
I've never taken a holiday since I started this job.
There's not enough people willing to take the risk.
Walk around the property and take a good look at it from the outside.
We took a long walk through the pines.

In ordinary spoken or written English, people use take with a range of nouns instead of using a more specific verb. For example people often say `he took control' or `she took a positive attitude' instead of `he assumed control' or `she adopted a positive attitude'.

The Communist Party took power after a three-month war.
Women should join the group and take a leading role.
In Asia the crisis took a different form.

Have is a word that is widely used in many ways. However, since you link it with get and take, then the meaning is best understood by taking it (take, again!) to mean that you own that something; it belongs to you.

I have my own business.
You have beautiful eyes.
She has her own point of view.
Do you have any brothers and sisters?
I have a good friend who’s a teacher.
Do you have any money with you?

People often use have got in spoken English.

I’ve got my own business.
You’ve got beautiful eyes.
She’s got her own point of view.
Have you got any brothers and sisters?
I’ve got a good friend who’s a teacher.
Have you got any money with you?

I’m afraid that this is a simplified lesson in the use of get, take, and have. But I hope it helps.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I find pronounsing a word is not very easy without hear it before.
Most of the times we read or say we are right but sometimes some words(new words) we may be worng.

eg:- "Character", I know from begining or I learnt in my childwood,
Now I have faced a new word "Charity"

Definatly with my past experience with "Character" i will pronounce it as "karity"
viseversa

we can give some many such examples.
If I am not wrong, no one can pronounce all words correctly,
If one knows phonetics well enough, he can pronounce every single word correctly.
I never heard about phonetics, could you please tell me what is that.

Is it the charecter which are upside down or revers or printed bars on top in the dictinary?
