What is the differents between used to and use to? Or there is any role for them? Thanks in advance

Hi Beba Osman,

Good question! The difference is in the form of the sentence. Used to is for an affirmative sentence.

  • I used to play football.

Use to isn't correct by itself. It must be with an auxiliary verb, in a negative sentence or question.

  • I didn't use to play football.
  • Did you use to play football?

Does that make sense? Have a look at this page for some more explanation and examples.

Best wishes,

Jonathan
