Teaching goals ● To use ?used to? to talk about a past habit or state ● To use ?be used to? to talk about what we have done regularly Teaching procedures Step 1 Having a revision Do you still remember Dr. Ma? What is he? (A doctor.) Where did he work in the past? (In the hospital.) Where does he work now? (On the ORBIS plane.) So we can say Dr. Ma used to work in the hospital. We use ?used to? to talk about a past habit or state. We can use an infinitive after ?used to?. Step 2 Practicing Say something about Dr. Ma?s life when he worked in a hospital using ?used to?.
Show a photo of your family. In pairs, tell each other what your lives were like in the past. Each student should make up at least 3 sentences with ?used to?. Step 4 Presenting Now Dr. Ma works on the ORBIS plane. He lives a life which is different from the one in the past. But he is used to his new life. He is used to working on the ORBIS plane. We use ?be used to? to talk about something we have done regularly for a long time so that it is not new any more. We put it before a noun (phrase) or an “-ing” form of a verb. Step 5 Finishing off the exercises Go to page 83 to finish exercises in Part A, B and C in pairs. Step 6 Doing an extension activity How have your lives changed since you started secondary school?
What new experiences and routines were you not familiar with at first? Like the different method of traveling to school, larger school size, different uniforms, more subjects offered. Work together to formulate sentences to express the idea of becoming accustomed to something. I am used to taking the bus to school. I am used to the larger classes at secondary school. I am used to wearing the school uniform. I am used to studying more than 10 subjects a week. Step 7 Coming to a summary Compare ?used to? and ?be used to?, and then work out the rule on page 84. used to 与 be used to 的运用区别 ●used to + do：“过去常常”表示过去习惯性的动作或状态，但如今已不存在。 Mother used not to be so forgetful. Scarf used to take a walk.（过去常常散步） ●be used to + doing：对……已感到习惯，或“习惯于”，to 是介词，后需加名词或动名 词。 He is used to a vegetarian diet. Scarf is used to taking a walk.（现在习惯于散步） ●used to 的用法 否定式简写为 usedn't，过去经常，以前常常。 We used to go there every year. （我每年都去那儿。） He is not what he used to be. （他已不是旧日的他了。） This used to be a shabby house. （此房年久失修） ●used to，would 这两个词语都可以表示过去常做某事，有时可以换用。 ●used to do 强调整过去习惯性的行为或状态， 但是现在没有这种行为或状态了。 因此， 这个短语的内涵是今昔对比。 Step 8 Homework a.
