    Welcome to the forum. Please see my amendments above in red.

    The simple present sentence for a habitual action would be "Every day we sit in the classroom until the evening so we get very tired". Your sentence started in the past but ended in the present which is ungrammatical.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No. The form 'used to' has no present-tense equivalent.

    If you look at the amendments I made to your first post, you will see that I made amendments to your capitalisation. Please edit your post, following the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".

    After you make those changes, we will deal with the grammar in your sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
