Unit 21 Level 3 (Upper Intermediate- Advanced): To be used to - To get used to

Is it true that you don't have any trouble using “to be used to” and “to get used to”? Can you understand the difference between them?

1) Test yourself watching these videos:

Video 2

2) Review the theory about “to be used to” and “to get used to” here and here.

3) Practice makes perfect!

Exercise 1

Exercise 2

Exercise 3

Exercise 4

Exercise 5

Exercise 6

4) Use the sentences from the above exercises to practice with your language exchange. If you don't have a language exchange (or a teacher) you are wasting your time, you'll never learn to speak English.

5) Let's learn some vocabulary. Extract all the words you don't know from this text. Look them up in an English-English dictionary like this one.

6) Listen and read this story. You should learn all the vocabulary and practice pronunciation. And, for the most daring, read this article from The Economist.

7) Finally, write a story of about 200/250 words using “used to”, “to be used to” and “to get used to”. You can use examples from the videos and exercises above.

If you have done all the exercises, then you've scored a 10! Congratulations! Imprimir

Mi duda es si realmente existe alguna diferencia entre be used to y get used to o ambas significan lo mismo. Muchas gracias.

Sí que existe uan diferencia.

be used to = estar acostumbrado a (indica un estado)
get used to= acostumbrarse (indica el proceso de acostumbrado)


-I'm used to living in Madrid. Estoy acostumbrado a vivir en Madrid. Es un estado.

-I'm getting used to living in Madrid. Me estoy acostumbrando a vivir en Madrid = todavía no me he acostumbrado, pero estoy en el proceso de hacerlo.

Espero haberte aclarado la duda.
