To say "I got greatly impressed ", could I say, "I got a great impression."

Thank you.

The question is whether I could say it both ways.

  • Your logic is correct, but greatly is something like a "fancy" word. E.g. you might say "I greatly appreciate it" to express a lot of appreciation in a polite context. Got X-ed most of the time is a very informal construction - opposite of fancy. So they sound weird together. – LawrenceC Feb 23 '18 at 14:49

I would say.

I was very impressed. - for your first example.

Your second example sounds correct.

  • "I was greatly impressed" is also fine. The key is that you wouldn't say "got", you'd say "was". – Jay Jul 29 '14 at 13:57

I got greatly impressed doesn't sound good because of got.

You can simply say , "I was.. " as per above response or even I am ..
