I’m not used to use a useful method but I’m getting used to use Engvid . I used to use wrong methods before Engvid.
Thank you Gill , I love your british accent.
By the way, what’s the difference Beetween the south and the north in London?

    Hello bonjour from France. If I don’t make a mistake, you asked me a question- in last training video- and you mentioned you hear a lot of tragic news about Iraq(you wrote Irak,and I think you mean Iraq). You was interested in knowing about my my country and life, and if my life is as hard as Iraq’s people, tell you and let you know about it.
    Iraq and Iran are two country with different culture, people and situation, to tell you the truth, here, security is the most noticeable feature, and Iranians feel comfortable in terms of security. In the other hands, I’m satisfied with my life here, and I’m crazy about Iran.
    If you want to know more, just ask.

      Sorry there’s a mistake: in the other words, I’m satisfied with my life….

It’s a very helpful lesson.Thank you, Jill.

Thank you very much Gill!!Very USEful lesson ;)
Just a short question: what are the differences between using the verb “to be used to” or just the simple present to describe regular actions??
-I´m used to playing tennis every Sunday.
-I play tennis every Sunday.

knopfler86

    That’s an interesting question… Now I’m curious too. Does anyone know if it’s the same?

    MatheusBeltrame

    Hi, knopfler86, and thanks for your question. Your second example is just a statement about what you do every Sunday. Your first example says something about how you FEEL about playing tennis — you are ‘used to playing’, which means it feels normal for you to play tennis every Sunday. I hope that helps to clarify :-)

    Gill

      Thanks Gill!!I understand it much better now.
      Hope to see you again soon in your next video ;)

      knopfler86

        an exciting question

Annie

I used to learn about “use in English” from other video on Youtube,
but now I my understanding is getting better after I watched this video.
thank you Gill.

M. Arip Gunawan

Hello Gill.

According to your explanation, “use to” is wrong for present activities. For example: “Even though Asda is around the corner, I use to go to Tesco” would be wrong, but I’ve used that structure lots of times & noone ever told me anything about that.
I’m a little confused.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday)
Marcelo.

marcelomiguelbazan

    Hey! handsome man, I can teach you more English if you visit me in the USA…;) Happy learning!

    fox4you2012

      OK, I will visit you if you send me a invitation ;)

      Adamos32

    Hi Marcelo — I think what you mean is: “Even though Asda is around the corner, I usually go to Tesco”. That describes what you do now, in the present, on a regular basis. “Used to” is for something you did in the past, which you don’t do any more. So if you’re talking about somewhere you lived 5 years ago, you might say “Even though Asda WAS around the corner, I USED TO go to Tesco”. I hope this helps to explain :-)

    Gill

hi my teacher gill,i think back and and i recognize that ‘ you used to teach me english in my high scool in uk ‘ hahaha don’t worry it was just a joke concerning this lesson , thank you gill for this lesson.

Thanks Gill for this lesson, it was great..:)

marcos alexandre

Hello mam, thanks for your lesson.I have a question regarding this video.In the first part of your lesson the second last sentence “he used to driving the car on the left side’In this sentence you use ‘ing’ form of the verb ‘driving’but this form of verb is used in continuous tenses.please tell me I can’t understand it.I will be thankful!

shayra

    Hi shayra — the construction is ‘to be used to doING something’, so, for example “In the UK we are used to drivING on the left side of the road.” “I am used to explainING points of grammar.” I hope that helps :-)

    Gill

    Raymond Murphy in “English grammar in use” says: after be/get used you cannot use the infinitive (to do/to drive etc.). “I am used to…” – “to” is a preposition, not a part of infinitive. (2nd edition, unit 60).

fox4you2012

“In the UK, you’re not used to extreme weather” because it isn’t a normal or regular situation, and this was my doubt, I believe that I had read it quickly and I couldn’t identify the verb “to be” and I failed it with “being used to”, maybe sometimes this lasts tense had sense, but I don’t know, if possible. Thanks a lot, teacher Gill, a very interesting lesson.

angardiobel

    Sorry, in “if possible” I wanted to write “it’s possible”, I think it’s better so. Thanks.

    angardiobel

I found an old proverb concerning the verb “to use”: THE ANVIL IS USED TO NOISE.
So I learnt a new word, anvil, that I never met before.
Thanks once again, Gill!

igorfranco95

Hello Gill! Thanks for explaining the use of the verb “use”, and as always after watching any of the EngVid videos, I am used to writing: this was a very intereting video.

I hope to see you soon!

Aleachi

Sorry I made a mistake, I wrote intereting instead of interesting, I have just realised that.

Aleachi

Thank you gill. Im getting used to it by the time to speak well in English. Sorry for the grammar

Hello, Gill!

Thanks for the lesson! It is rather useful indeed. I used to practise English only by books, but now I also see many videos. I have already got used to it. What is the use of learning a language if we don’t practise it?

Until next time!

getting use to them…

Vhaldo

I problably made a mistake on the comment before,,the right is to write “I’m not used to USING these expressions…If is not right please help me…

Vhaldo

    “Used to using” is the right way! Good catch :)

    engVid Moderator

I’ve got 7/10.
I think for present tense the words “usually” or “normally” is properly too instead “to be used to”.
If I wrong please a comment.
Thank’s.

macpiotr

Hello Gill,

thank you for great video. Could you be so kind to explain me something? In fist question I mark “use” and it was corect, but then after cheking answers I becomme confused. Would “uses” also be a corect answer, because in sentense that you wrote on the table “she uses a sat-nav…” u used “uses”… I hope my question is not confusing and that you will hel me. Thank you

I have a question please : Why do you say “I’m used to getting up early” or “he’s not used to driving left”
I thought we had to say “I’m used to get up early” or he’s not used to drive left”
With infinitive and not with gerund…
May I have your opinion please. Thanks ! ?
