Thanks James, it’s cool.
I didn’t know the form “I’m used to V-ing”.

Profile photo of Maxim Maxim

    To maxim, i hope i can help you by this..

    S + V2B (To Be) + used to + Ving
    S = I, YOU, WE,THEY, HE, SHE, IT
    Tobe : Am, Are , Is

Hi James,
I really confuse with the construction of:

S + V2B + used + to + Ving.

ex: I am used to working …

I thought after the preposition to, it was not correct to put Ving.

Could you be so kind to give more information about that?

Thanks in advance

    Did you watch the lesson or did you not? JAMES says you can say that sentence you putt… so that mean you can say it. Stupid!

Thanks a lot for the explanation!!!!!

Really good and clear

Profile photo of andressa andressa

I think this is the answer I was looking for

Why do we use -ing for a verb after be used to? Because we always use -ing for a verb after a preposition – and the to is a preposition

Profile photo of Isaac Isaac

    I think the simplest answer it’s a special, an irregular case. You just have to learn it. :)

Hi James
Today I have known a more way to use the verb Ving. The understanding of the using of the verb Ving is very difficult to me. I hope you can do other videos about this matter.
Your lesson are always very interesting and useful to me.
Thanks a lots

Dear James
I have written a few times for you but I hadn’t have a luck to talk to you yet.
Here is my question, please let me know.
Int he below paragraph why don’t we say ” students are confusing or confused) the word confusing is it a gerund or present participle (verbal). Verbals are the most confusing sections in English grammar.
This English lesson outlines the difference between “used to” and “I’m used to”. I’m used to hearing ESL students (confusing )these two, so watch this lesson and learn the difference!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

hey James! nice lesson but I have a question, why do you use the ING with the verbs if u have “TO” so the first thing I do to set a verb in gerund is eliminate the “to” so I think you must say I’m used to work everyday “not Working”
you have my e-mail so

You put “to wearing”, and I couldn’t understand why, I would probably put “to wear”, could you explain me that.

Hi James!
Can you please confirm the negative and interrogative forms of “I USED TO “? E.g I used to play => “I DIDN’T USED TO PLAY” and “DID YOU USED TO PLAY” ? Is it correct?

Profile photo of milly milly

    I didn’t use to play football.

    I usedn’t to… / I used not to…

    Did you use to…? / Used you to…?

    Didn’t you use to…? / Usedn’t you to …?

    Note: take into account that ‘Did/Didn’t you use to’ is a more informal form, common in conversation.

    Profile photo of AlessandroItaly AlessandroItaly

I want to answer your question, Milly. You can’t say “I DIDN’T USED TO PLAY”, the right form is “I DIDN’T USE TO PLAY”.and about the question “DID YOU USED TO PLAY” -it’s not correct, the right form is “DID YOU USE TO PLAY?”

James.. I have to say that your lesson was fantastic.. I showed it to my students as an extra and follow up to our ‘used to’ lesson(teaching at a language school down under!) and they loved it. I was pleased to see someone else as silly as I sometimes can be.. it’s usually responded to in a positive way, and they all had a good chuckle at the underwear bit. I’m sure most of them will be trying out your website again, and just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration to use fun examples… loved it! cheers!

I have a question and please I would love if someone answers me… I already saw the video BUT there’s one doubt. Is it only with Ving? I think I’ve heard “I’m used to drink coffee” but I don’t know if that’s correct.
I have another doubt about how to use “I got used to”. PLEASE, I’D BE HAPPY IF SOMEONE FROM ENGVID ANSWERS ME. Thanks a lot

Cinderella

    You might have heard wrong! They were probably saying “I used to drink coffee”. (In the past, I drank coffee regularly, but I don’t any more.)

    As for “get used to”…it’s how you talk about adjusting to changes or new things:

    – The train goes right by my new house. It’s really loud, but I’ve gotten used to it — I don’t even notice any more.
    – The store isn’t carrying that kind of coffee any more. You’ll have to get used to going without it.
    – My sister just got married. She’s still getting used to having her mother-in-law around.

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

Hi, thanks for your clear explanation which helps me to understand it much better. Yet, I still have a question for you, can I conclude that I’m used to is just the same as an expression to talk about habit we usually do at present?

Could you help me with some piece of grammar though? There’s a construction “be accustomed to”, it’s similar to “get used to” by meaning. But what’s it followed by: doing/to do? I’ve seen both variants a number of times so I’m a bit a t a loss:) TIA

Profile photo of omidamiri omidamiri

Hello there! well I’m new here, I’ve been studying and learning by myself for a long time, that’s how I found you on youtube :)
I Have a huge confusion about this topic, actually, the lesson has been really clear, but my question is related to what I’ve been hearing about the using of “be used to”. I’ve heard: “I’m used to study at night” – I’m pretty aware that we must use a gerund instead of an infinitive, but is there any exception in spoken English, informal English or Brithish English, in which it’s possible to use an infinitive with “Be Used to” like: “I’m used to exercise everyday”?

Thank you! :)

Profile photo of mabel29 mabel29

    Welcome! Thanks for commenting!

    I hope another teacher chimes in, but here’s my guess — could you have been mishearing “I used to study at night”?

    “I’m used to exercise every day” works if exercise is a noun — “I’m used to [getting] exercise every day”.

There “use to” and “used to” and there “use to get” and “used to get” and there “got” with word use & used. I get very confused the correct tense in writing and speaking?

Profile photo of Rican Rican

So, is it wrong if I say “I’m used to make a cake” instead of “I’m used to making a cake?

It’s like mixing gerund with infinitive.

Profile photo of sebastian2013 sebastian2013

    Well, I think I grabbed your doubt. Usually the preposition to is followed by a verb in infinitive form according you said, but the expression “used to” always will have the “to” preposition like a phrasal verb. Actually, you must utilize ING form because the structure of sentence starts with Subject + verb to be. Unlike the sentence would have the same structure of the past actions that you don’t do anymore. Otherwise, how could we differentiate the two situations? I hope it can help you.

Thank again for awesome class, it was pretty useful, specially because I’ve noticed that the most all students had the same doubt in which I’d made mistake, where I work for, I have to deal with guys from the U.S.A. and others countries where English language is used a lot, anyway, I always thought that I heard from those guys the following form: I’m used to DO/TRY/SPEAK/SEE ….”, by now I can understand that I was completely wrong in my own interpretation of what they were saying!!!!
Thank a million for you all

Profile photo of journec journec

The correct negative forms of these sentences are:

For “I’m used to + -ing”
I’M NOT USED TO standING here.

For “I used to”
I DIDN’T USE TO speak English.

Hi James,
Thanks a lot fot that helpful lesson,I really didn’t have no idea about it before watching the video.
I have also an issue about your lessons,why you don’t post exercises ?
I think that’s it’s helpful too,because we imporve what we learned by doing exercises (It’s my opinion)

I used to did karate
but nowadays Iam used to do kung fu

Profile photo of kotoz kotoz

    It’s almost OK. I the first pasrt of the sentence you have to use with V1 (first form of the verb) and the second part the ‘ING’ form. eg: I used to do katate but nowdays I’m used to doing kung fu. Basically, this meens I did carate regurally in the past, but these days I do kung fu regurally, now I’m familiar with kung fu.

The difference between a Past Simple (I used to) and a Present Continuous (I am studying) but this last tense like a tense with an adverb between the auxiliary “V2B” and the main verb, so it’s “I am STILL/ALREADY/JUST studying” or “I am USED TO studying” what it’s not new or strange. It’s a method to remember the difference of these tense for me. Good explanation and performance. Thanks teacher James from EngVid.

All the teachers are great, but this guy is my favorite by far. Haha! I love your lessons and you explain everything clearly. Congratulations and thanks for the lesson. However, is there any kind difference when the verb “to be” is in the past while using “I’m used to”? Thanks is advance!
