    SENTENCE CORRECTION

    HI

    IN A GRAMMAR BOOK I READ

    'HE IS USED TO WORK HARD' IS A WRONG SENTENCE.

    'HE IS USED TO WORKING HARD' IS CORRECT.

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.

    Please don't post all in capital letters - it's the online equivalent of shouting. Please edit your post using correct capitalization and punctuation.

    The sentence can be "He used to work hard" (habit in the past) or "He is used to working hard" (he is accustomed to it).
