We use 'used to' for something that happened regularly in the past but no longer happens. I used to smoke a packet a day but I stopped two years ago. Ben used to travel a lot in his job but now, since his promotion, he doesn't. I used to drive to work but now I take the bus. We also use it for something that was true but no longer is. There used to be a cinema in the town but now there isn't. 'Used to do' is different from 'to be used to doing' and 'to get used to doing' to be used to doing We use 'to be used to doing' to say that something is normal, not unusual. I'm used to living on my own. to get used to doing We use 'to get used to doing' to talk about the process of something becoming normal for us. I didn't understand the accent when I first moved here but I quickly got used to it. Return to List of Grammar Lessons
