Used to or would – the difference in under a minute!! #Shorts
So used to or would a little bit confusing
basically used to is for actions that happened over a period of time.
So we want to focus on the fact that they were possibly continuous over that period of time like we could say, “I used to live in Liverpool not I would live in Liverpool.
Would is for repetitive actions that happen there’s a break but then it happens again
So it’s for repeated actions the focus isn’t on the period
Let’s look at an example.
I used to play the guitar
We can’t say I would play the guitar.
because it happened over that period
but we can say I would dance around in the rock clubs to Nirvana.
