Grammar Activity - USED TO


Inspired by Claudio Azevedo´s blog. I decided to share some simple activities I use with my students w/ videos from Youtube. Advantage: videos from youtube are accessible to almost everyone w/ internet in class and videos are short.

I used this video w/ a group after having taught the usage of USED TO (past habits)

WHILE watching: ask sts to make sentences w/ used to about the video
Ex: The man used to ......
The boy used to .........
AFTER watching: Write down some sentences sts have created.
Pairs make sentences about their past habits.
