  • Hi everyone.

  • I'm Esther in this video, I'm going to talk about the two similar and sometimes confusing english expressions used to and be used to.

  • These expressions can be confusing, but this video will help you understand the difference and when to use them.

  • So keep watching.

  • Mhm.

  • Let's start with youth to its form is used to plus the infinitive, it's used as a verb used to express.

  • Is that an activity was a past habit.

  • It was a regular occurrence at an earlier stage of life, but not anymore.

  • Let's look at some examples.

  • The first sentence says I used to drink green tea.

  • However, because it says used to it means not anymore.

  • It used to be a regular thing in the past, but I don't drink green tea anymore.

  • The next sentence says Karen used to play with dolls again.

  • Karen played with dolls a lot.

  • Maybe in the past, but she doesn't play with dolls anymore.

  • And that's why we used used to now, I'll move on to be used to.

  • Its form is b or get used to.

  • It means that you are accustomed to something you don't find it unusual, it's familiar to you.

  • Let's look at some examples.

  • The first sentence says, I'm getting used to working at night.

  • Remember the form can be be used to or get used to in this example we're using get used to I'm getting used to working at night.

  • I'm becoming familiar with working at night.

  • Maybe it's because I've been working at night for a long time.

  • The next sentence says she's used to the heat in the summer.

  • Here we use the beaver.

  • She is.

  • She's used to the heat in the summer.

  • She's accustomed to it.

  • Maybe it's because she lived in a hot place when she was young.

  • Now let's move on to a checkup in this conversation.

  • There are two sentences in one of the sentences we use used to in the other sentence, we need to use B.

  • Or get used to take a moment to think about where we use these expressions.

  • A.

  • Says I blink, have a better work schedule.

  • A is trying to express that in the past.

  • He had a better work schedule but that's not true anymore.

  • So we need to use used to I used to have a better work schedule be says don't worry you'll blink this new schedule soon.

  • B.

  • Is trying to tell a after some time you'll be accustomed to your new schedule.

  • So he can say don't worry, you'll be used to this new schedule soon or don't worry you'll get used to this new schedule soon.

  • So if we look at this conversation altogether A says I used to have a better work schedule be says don't worry you'll get used to this new schedule soon now.

  • You know the difference between used to and be used to be sure to use them correctly remember it's always important to practice everything you learn in my videos.

  • Thank you guys so much for watching and I'll see you in the next video.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Oh yeah.

  • Oh yeah.
