EP30: How to use [to be] Used to

Hello everyone, I’m Kristian, and I’m here to explain be used to.

We use this expression to talk about things that are normal for us now. For example, Schools are now closed in Prague. I’ve been teaching online for two years, so this is not a problem for me.

I can say I’m used to online classes.

If we want to use a verb phrase with the expression, we need to add -ing. For example, I’m used to teaching online.

If something has not become normal, we can use not to make the negative form. For example, I’m not used to staying inside the whole day.

What are you used to or what are you not used to?

Let me know. Bye!
