SPOKEN ENGLISH DAY-46(10-05-2016)
Dear friends today, let's observe the usage of  'Used to' structure

Application :
1. It is mainly used to talk about habits in the past and not continued in the present.
2. Action that happened regularly in the past and doesn't happen anymore.

'Used to' is used ONLY to talk about the past habitual action.
You can only use it in the simple past tense. It is not used in any other verb tense.

Grammar focus
In this structure we use
1. Used to
2. didn't use to/ never used to

Sentence structure:
Positive :
Subject + used to + V1 + object +time frame.

Negative structure:
Subject + didn't use to + V1+object
Subject + never +used to + V1 + object.

1. I used to play cricket when I was in school.
2. He never used to bunk classes in the college.
3. My brother used to enjoy riding a bike five years ago.
4.  She used to participate in all the inter school competitions.
5. I used to go to school on foot.
6. We used to go to church every Sunday.
7. I never used to attend tuition classes.

We often use 'used to' to emphasize a contrast between the past and Present.
