used toto talk about the past in English. In this fun lesson, I will use the phrase
used toto talk about my past tastes in fashion, music, and hobbies. I will compare my past and present preferences and teach you how to correctly use
used toin sentences. Not only will you get to find out all the weird things I loved when I was younger, but you will also learn a useful idiom in the process! For example, I used to wear “phat pants” in high school. Now, I wear colorful dresses. The phrase
used tois easy to learn and will come in handy in everyday conversations and interactions. At the end of the video, take my quiz to practice what you learned in this basic English grammar lesson. Leave a comment and describe what you used to wear!
thank you Emma

Hi Ange benie,
How’ve you been doing?
I wish you all the best in learning English.
We must to be patient and learn consistently every day. Fluency will come after that. At least i hope so.
Hi Marcin !!
I am doing well !!
thank you for welcoming me to this website!
yes we have to be patient for achieving our goals.
see you next time !!
what is the methodology you were used for improving english language in speaking in front of many people?
i just want to know!!
It’s my wrinkle. I find it difficult to get my opinion across. I’m not good at getting my thoughts across even in my native language. I’m used to being a shy and inconspicuous person.
Maybe you have some advice for me?
me too I just need an advice but i am going to find other people who know english to talk with them using voice call ,i think it will help me
We have own discord server. You can join to us as well.
Hi Professor I am more interested in watching English news and movies Help me in this regard.
I got caught on the ninth question. Freaky automatism
You take a long time to check my comment
thanks for this lesson.
Unfortunately i can’t relate to you. I was completely different than you in my childhood.
I used to play video games all the time. It was my whole life. I remember the day when i got my computer. I was so jubilant. Now I do like video games too but i play only on weekends. I don’t have too much free time :(. When i was a kid I used to have more leisure time.
Nowadays video game are suitable learning English.
I used to make many friends by playing video games.
Almost all of the come from different countries. I can talk to them and learn English while I’m playing video games.
I do what i like and I learn English at the same time. It’s both win.
One more time many thanks for another extremely useful lesson.
I’m looking forward for next lesson from you.
Take care and stay out of troubles.
thanks from algeria
I used to give a shiny ball-ring necklace to my girlfriend when I was high school.
I think I’ve just found her again.
Hi Emma :)
I got 9/10 but i think at number 5: used to have more correct used to be. We’re usually talk: have married, I haven’t seen: be married. Thank Emma
Hi nguyen van long,
i don’t understand you. Could you rewrite it?
at 5th question: the correctly answer: used to be married but I think the answer: used to have married that more correct. Could you explain more detail for me? Thank you
1. “You used to be married” -> it means You had a wife/husband in the past but not now.
2. “You used to have married” -> in this case “married” would mean a wedding.
“They had married in London.”
At least it’s what i think.
Actually I am reviewing this material, but this time I know I can understand better.
I remember some things that happened, like..
I used to rent martial art movies. Between the oldest were the best.
I used to lift kites in my grandmother’s house during vacation.
I used to go to church on sunday. I remember there was a delicious hot dog on the sidewalk in the front door.
So, that’s it.
Thank you for sharing.
I used to play video games a lot, now i watch movies and read books. Also I use free time for physical exercises.
I was the same when i was a child. Only video games. My whole World.
Have you seen “Witcher” from “Netflix” already?
