Kiana I hope my explanation helps. used to We use "used to" to talk about things, habits or repeated actions in the past, which we don't do in the present. For example: I used to visit my grandmother every Sunday when I was a kid. ( I did on that time but now I don't) I used to play baseball with my cousins on the street. (on that time I did this but now I don't) I used to go to the church with my mom when we lived in the town. (maybe when I was a teenager I lived in the town now I live in the city) be used to we use "be used to" when we talk about things that are usual, normal, regular, habits, or things that we are accustomed to. For example. I am used to taking a bus to go to the school. I am used to running in the evening after my job. I am used to sleeping a nap after lunch. I am used to driving a car. used to be I don't know which grammatical pattern is this. it could be "use be" or "get used to" or maybe is a mistake and something is missing. or we need a native who wants to explain.
