Hi guys,

1. How often do you do exercise / take exercise / exercise?

A is OK, as noted earlier. B is a bit formal and rather old-fashioned. C is very commonly said.

Best wishes, Clive

How often do you get exercise?

Is the above sentence acceptable?
Hi,
Yes.
Clive
If you don't do or don't take much exercise, it means that you don't actually perform an activity such as running,walking,playing tennis or whatever.

Get exercise is quite different. This means receive some kind of exercise as a result of an activity. Sitting at a desk you would obviously not receive or benefit from any exercise at all.

Hi,
Much depends on the context but, generally speaking, 'I don't get a lot of exercise' suggests to me that the speaker wants to exercise but is unable to, perhaps because of a lack of opportunity or even a lack of will-power.

Best wishes, Clive
My fingers are the only parts of my body that get much exercise when I'm answering questions in ESL forums. And yesterday, what with all the spam that was coming in, my "delete finger" got tons of exercise. Emotion: big smile
1. We do not do exercise. The British take exercise in the older days, but now we just exercise.

2. Either is good.

3. Do you mean travel to the country, meaning away from the city into the farmland or the forest? That would be to the country. If you travel in the country, it just means you go somewhere else within the country.

4. and 5. both are correct, we use them either way.

Great questions!
