Grammar explanation

.Used to + infinitive and be/get used to + –ing look similar but they have very different uses

?Did you use to come here as a child

be used to and get used to

.She’s used to the city now and doesn’t get lost any more
.He wasn’t used to walking so much and his legs hurt after the hike
.I’m a teacher so I’m used to speaking in public

We use get used to to talk about the process of becoming familiar with something

.I’m finding this new job hard but I’m sure I’ll get used to it soon
.It took my mother years to get used to living in London after moving from Pakistan
