1. Qual a diferena entre used to e be used to?

Used to + verbo
Em portugus, quando nos referimos a hbitos passados, usamos costumava,
certo? Eu costumava brincar de Lego quando era criana, Ela costumava chorar
muito quando era menor, etc. Em situaes como essa, em que queremos
mencionar um fato que era comum e recorrente no passado, mas que no acontece
mais, usamos I used to. Veja exemplos:
My mother told me we used to live in London when I was little.
Minha me me disse que morvamos em Londres quando eu era pequeno.
Back in the 70s, people used to wear neon colors.
Nos anos 70, as pessoas costumavam vestir cores neon.
Paul used to be very stressed, but now he is more relaxed.
Paul costumava ser muito estressado, mas agora ele est mais relaxado.
His supervisor used to deliver training sessions every Thursday.
O supervisor dele costumava realizar sesses de treinamento todas as quintas.
Na forma negativa, used volta a ser use uma vez que o auxiliar didnt j
expressa a ideia de passado.
I didnt use to drink so much coffee, but now I do.
(Eu no costumava beber tanto caf, mas agora eu bebo.)
To be used to + verbo com ing
Assim como usamos used to para falar sobre fatos passados, tambm podemos
us-lo para falar de fatos atuais. Quando algo um hbito atual, que costumamos
fazer no presente, dizemos Im used to.
A diferena entre a forma que vimos antes e essa est na presena do verbo to
be (que varia de pessoa para pessoa), que deve vir antes de used to, e no fato de
o verbo seguinte precisar de ing. Veja exemplos:
I am used to getting home and drinking a glass of milk.
(Costumo chegar em casa e beber um copo de leite.)
My neighbor told me she is used to going to church every Sunday.
(Minha vizinha me contou que costuma ir igreja todo domingo.)
His brother is used to having bacon and eggs for breakfast.
(O irmo dele costuma comer bacon e ovos no caf da manh.)

2. Zero Conditional
IF + VERB (S.Present )+ VERB (s. present)

verdadeiras e para dar conselhos. Vejamos alguns exemplos:

-If I take the stairs, my legs hurt. (Se eu subo as escadas, minhas pernas doem.)
algo que sempre ou geralmente acontece;
-When water gets to 100 degrees Celsius, it boils. (Quando a gua chega a 100
graus Clsius, ela ferve.) uma verdade;
-Dont interrupt the meeting unless the boss calls. (No interrompa a reunio a
no ser que o chefe chame.) um conselho.
First Conditional
IF + SUBJECT + VERB (simple present) + SUBJECT + WILL +
VERB (infinitive without to)
Usamos o first conditional para falar sobre uma forte possibilidade ou certeza no
- If you try it, you wont regret it. (Se voc experimentar, voc no vai se
arrepender.) forte possibilidade;
- If they need it, theyll buy it. (Se eles precisarem, eles vo comprar) certeza.
