everyone Please, help me understan something I can't find anywhere. Is the sentence below acceptable. If yes, why does it sound so weird. If not, why, and what's the correct version. If there is a correct version whis is not this, it can't express exactly this. What to do?) Here it goes: When I used to go to the river, I used to swim
It may get repetitive to say "used to" many times. That isn't necessarily incorrect, but it sounds awkward. Here are some alternatives:
I used to go to the river and swim.
I used to go to the river, and would swim a lot.
When I used to go to the river, I would swim and play for hours.
When I used to go to the river, I would swim, and run, and have a picnic.
