Confusing Words Made Simple

I used to wake up every morning at 5:00 a.m.
I am used to waking up every morning at 5:00 a.m.

Those two sentences look and sound very similar, don’t they? But are they? Is there a difference between those two sentences?

If you are reading those sentences, again and again, trying to identify the correct answer, you’re not alone. They definitely are confusing. Maybe even frustrating. And then, what if I told you we have another similar expression?

I got used to waking up every morning at 5:00 a.m.

I know. Used to. Be used to. Get used to. It’s okay if you just thought, “What is wrong with English????” We all think that sometimes.

But here’s the good news about these confusing expressions: after you watch the video, you won’t ask that question. You’ll look at those three sentences and say, “I know exactly what they mean and how to use them!”

Here’s what we cover in today’s Confident English lesson:

First, we’ll answer the important question: do these expressions mean the same thing or are they different? Then you’ll learn the exact meaning of used to, be used to, and get used. And finally, we’ll talk about some key grammatical patterns you should follow so you can communicate clearly and correctly.

Most importantly, you’ll be able to use these common expressions that native speakers use every day. And you’ll be able to do it with confidence.
