    Is it right or not?

    If I write:
    She wasn't used to living in a hot country when she moved to Vietnam"
    Does it sound grammatically?
    In addition, could I use:
    She hadn't used to living in a hot country before moving to Vietnam?

    Please, help me ASAP

    I think it's more correct to say: She wasn't used to living in a hot country when she moved to Vietnam.
    Or you can also say: She didn't use to live in a hot country before moving to Vietnam.

    Oh, sorry, that's my mistakes
    So, could I use: She hadn't used to living?

    She didn't use to living in a hot country before moving to Vietnam
    Do you think the sentence is ok. I thought that should be Past perfect here at the first clause.

    It's not grammatically correct.

    I agree with Harry Smith's suggestions.
