My high school senior English teacher said, "Don't say got unless you gotta say got." So, I've always avoided the word and used have instead.

I taught high school oral English in China during the 2009-2010 school year and they teach the use of got, as in, "I've got a cold."

I learned that the use of the word got is British English, and the Chinese text books are greatly influenced by the Brits.
