    always used to ...............

    Hi all,

    Is it grammatically correct to say,

    for example, when I was a child I always used to be a singer at church but now I sing in a pub

    ??

    Is it okay to add 'always' before used to ......

    Thanks

    Yes, I do not think that has grammatical problem, but about the meaning it can be correct if you really frequently were going to church in that time!

    In the first example, 'always' means 'often'.
    In the second, it is used correctly. It means the postman never only rang once.
