  • - Hello, this is Jack from tofluency.com.

  • Now can you understand this?

  • I used to use this to make my videos,

  • but now I use this.

  • It took me a while to get used to using it,

  • but now I am completely used to it.

  • How was that?

  • Was it quite difficult because in this English lesson,

  • you're going to learn the difference between I used to do

  • versus I am used to doing, versus get used to doing.

  • So let's get started with that first sentence.

  • I said I used to use this to record my videos.

  • So this is the webcam that I used in the past,

  • that's the key.

  • I used to use signifies that this happened in the past

  • and that it is no longer true.

  • Here are some more examples.

  • I used to teach one-to-one lessons.

  • In the past, I gave one-to-one lessons on Skype.

  • I don't do this anymore, that's why I say

  • I used to teach one-to-one lessons.

  • I used to live in Spain, I used to live in Spain.

  • I lived in Bilbao and Valencia.

  • I don't live there anymore.

  • This is true in the past, but not true now.

  • I used to go to football practice every Saturday morning.

  • Again, this is true in the past, it is not true now.

  • I used to go to football practice every Saturday morning.

  • Now for past habits, we can also use would.

  • For example, I would go to football practice

  • every Saturday morning.

  • My dad would take me and then we would come home,

  • have some chicken and chips, and then we would go

  • to the football match.

  • If you have seen any of our conversations,

  • then you'll know that we use this a lot.

  • We especially use it when we're talking about fond memories

  • in the past, but you can't say I would live in Spain

  • when talking about the past because it's only used

  • for past habits, not for past states.

  • So I used to use this to record my videos,

  • but now I use this.

  • And I said it took me some time to get used to using it.

  • It took me some time to get used to using it.

  • So you'll notice that after used to, we use

  • the gerent here, get used to doing something.

  • Get used to playing, get used to singing,

  • get used to making videos, et cetera.

  • In this case, it took me some time to get used to using it.

  • We can also say it took me some time to get used to it,

  • but I wanted to highlight the fact

  • that we used the gerent here.

  • To get used to something or to get used to doing something

  • means that you become accustomed to it,

  • that it is no longer strange or difficult to do.

  • So in my case, it took me some time to get used

  • to using this new camera.

  • It took me some time for it to be normal for me,

  • to be accustomed to using it.

  • Another example is this.

  • It was strange at first, but I soon got used to driving

  • on the right side of the road, or the wrong side.

  • But I soon got used to driving on the right side

  • of the road because in the UK, people drive on the left.

  • In America, people drive on the right.

  • It was strange at first, but I soon got used to it.

  • Another example is sometimes when I meet new people

  • in America, they don't understand me at first,

  • but they soon get used to my accent,

  • they soon get used to my accent.

  • The last thing I said was I am used to using it,

  • I am used to using it.

  • And when we use I am used to using it,

  • this signifies our state now, this signifies

  • what is true now.

  • It's not talking about any change, that is get,

  • but it's just talking about what is true now.

  • Another example is this, I'm not used to speaking

  • in front of this many people.

  • I'm not used to speaking in front of this many people.

  • You might hear somebody say this at a wedding

  • if they have to give a speech, and it just means

  • that they don't have experience with this,

  • that this isn't familiar to them.

  • I'm not used to speaking in front of this many people.

  • Okay, so look at these three sentences.

  • I used to get up early.

  • I'm used to getting up early.

  • I need to get used to getting up early.

  • Do you now know the difference between these sentences?

  • The first one is talking about something that was true

  • in the past, but it's not true now.

  • I used to get up early, but I don't anymore.

  • The second one is talking about what is familiar to you now.

  • I'm used to getting up early,

  • I'm used to getting up early.

  • This is normal to me, it's fine now.

  • There is no problem with this.

  • And the third one, I need to get used to getting up early

  • is similar to number two, but it focuses on the change.

  • At the moment, it's horrible.

  • It's a terrible thing, but I need to get used to it,

  • I need to get used to getting up early.

  • What I want you to do now is two things.

  • Firstly, leave a comment below and use used to

  • in the past and also, be used to doing.

  • So think about some examples that are relevant to your life.

  • Secondly, I have created a quiz for you,

  • a test that will help you understand this difference.

  • So just click the link at the end of this video

  • and there will be 10 questions for you to answer

  • and I think at the end of that quiz, you'll have a really

  • good understanding of this.

  • And also, feel free to watch this video again

  • and if you have enjoyed it,

  • then please share it with your friends.

  • Thank you so much for being here and I'll see you

  • in the next lesson.

  • (upbeat music)
