Unit 1 USED TO

 We can use “used to” to talk about a past habit or state.

 “Used to” is the same for all subjects, and you follow it with the infinitive “to”: “I / You / He / She / We
/

They used to smoke.”

 To make the negative, use “didn't” + use + to + verb.

 To make the negative, use “didn’t” + used + to + verb. (Remove the final /d/ ending from “used”.)

 An example for a state: “He used to live in London” (but he doesn’t now)

 An example for a habit: “He used to go on holiday to Scotland every year” (but he doesn’t now)
He used to smoke.”

“He didn’t use to smoke.”

“Did you / she/he use to smoke?”

To make the question, use “did” as the auxiliary, and take the final /d/ ending
off “used”:
Be used to + doing

There’s a big difference between used to do – to talk about past habits or


states and is used to doing – to talk about our familiarity with a place, or
activity.

The form is subject + verb to be + used to + verb in the ing form / noun

Examples:
“I am / was used to studying English every day.”
“I am used to his jokes.” (example with a noun)
“You are / were used to studying English every day.”
“He is / was used to studying English every day.”
 You can change the verb “to be” with the verb “get” to talk about the process of becoming used to
something (rather than the state of being used to something).

 “If you live in England, you will get used to driving on the left!” (= it will no longer be a problem
for you)

“He finally got used to the winter weather.”

 Don’t make the mistake of combining both forms to make an ungrammatical sentence like “I am
used to study.”

 Remember: Either “I used to study” (past habit but no longer true) or


“I am used to studying” (I am familiar with studying).
