    little help

    My teacher make me a question in the school today, that was:
    Is it possible to change the underlined verbs to Ďused to'?

    1 In my twenties I had long hair. In my twenties I used to have long hair.
    2 I played tennis last Sunday.
    3 You didnít tell us about your new job.
    4 John went to school in Wisconsin.
    5 Sheila didnít like her English teacher at school.

    I said that just the first one was possible. She told me that was incorrect, but she didn't give me the answer.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thanks

    non-standard:
    Sheila did not used to like her English teacher at school.

    We use 'used to' for something that happened regularly in the past but no longer happens.
