Grammar Warm-up – Part 63

used to/would

We use (used to) + infinitive or (would) + infinitive to describe repeated actions in the past
(I used to keep the windows closed when I first moved in. (but I stopped doing this
.I would leave the windows open whenever I was at home
.Note: we do not usually use would in the negative form and in Yes/No questions

:We use (used to) + infinitive to describe past states that are usually no longer true
We used to live in London when I was a kid. but we don’t now: not We would live in London when I was a kid

We do not use (used to) to refer to specific restricted periods in the past or saying how long it took or how many times
(I lived in New York City for ten years. (not I used to live in New York City for ten years
I went to London twice when I was young. not I used to go to London twice when I was young
.Note: we do not use would with state verbs

.Correct the mistakes in the following statements

.I used to live in New York City for ten years
.I used to go to London twice when I was young
.We would live in London when I was a kid
