If you talk about something that was a habit in the past , you use the structure USED TO + INFINITIVE. For example, answer these questions, about your childhood:
1 – What programs on TV did you use to see?
2 – What games did you use to play?
3 – What songs and artists didi you use to like/listen to?
Answer these questions starting like this:
1 – I used to see... Etc...
If you talk about a place and its changes, you say:
XXX used to be (ex.less violent, quieter...)... Or XXX used to have (few cars , many houses...)
EXERCISES 1 - Now,think about some examples/ you can make about how OLD RIO used to be and what it used to have. 2 – Go to the site : www.ego4u.com and practise a bit more. Have a good week! Good luck! Professora Regina
