    Not a heck of a lot of time to prepare....It's always a good idea to ask the teacher for help after the class is over. Most of them are good that way.

    If someone is used to something it means he is familiar/experienced with something, so it's no longer starnge or new to that person.

    "I have lived in Toronto for 25 years. I am used to the humid weather in summer".

    You will find that you can put "get" in front of "used to" and the verb will take the "ing" ending:

    "My new house is so small but it's really cute. I am sure we will all get used to living here".

    "Son, staring Monday you have to be up at 6:00 to make it to school on time. You will have to get used to getting up early".
