    Re: used to & be/get used to

    When you say I used to do it ( but now I donīt anymore ) youīre talking about past habits....like "I used to ride a bike to school when I was a child".
    when you say that but in a question or negative you use the auxiliary verb did/didnīt...then itīs use to..for example:Did you use to ride a bike to school too? / I didnīt use to ride a bike, I used to go on foot!

    Be/get used to doing something means to become accustomed to doing something...example, I am getting used to( getting accustomed to ) the weather now...Where I come from the weather is very different / I have to get used to ( get accustomed to )the food, everything tastes so different...

    Hope this helped you!
