In following examples I understand:
- Situations are in the past.
- Situations are continued until some time and stopped.
- Situations are regular, routine and repetitive.
My question is should we use used to or simply use the simple past of a verb? When and how do we use used to and what are the differences?
Please, explain this to me with examples.
