Handout Overview

Reviews the structure of ‘used to’ and ‘didn’t use to’, as well as questions using ‘used to.’ Students can use ‘used to’ and ‘didn’t use to’ to talk about actions in the past that they no longer do. Since behaviors change over time, this is an excellent structure to use when reflecting on the past. This also gives students the opportunity to explain how they have changed as they have gotten older.
