Welcome to our new audio lesson. You will learn the difference between BE USED TO and GET USED TO, which we use to talk about something we are accustomed to or becoming accustomed to.
For instance, “I have lived in Madrid for many years so I am used to the noise of the capital”. This means the noise of the capital isn’t already new for you. Another example: My timetable has changed, so I have to get used to working night shifts. This means the new thing has appeared in your life, and you need to accept it and become accustomed to it. By the way, if we use a verb after both structures, we must put it in a gerund form (verb+ing), like in the second example. Got it? To know more, listen to the lesson.
