  1. Why do the say “but don’t anymore” ? it isn’t enough with the “used to” expression ?

    I liked the “not as much as I used to…” 🙂

  2. Hi PPlux,

    “I used to get up early when I was younger”…doesn’t actually confirm whether you’re still getting up early nowadays or not. So it’s ok if you reinforce and confirm the idea of that being a past habit with a “but don’t anymore”.

    I don’t know if I made myself clear…

  3. Hoping you are getting better, Elena… “I used to read your posts once a week… now I need to read them everyday to be sure you are ok” 🙂 (good practice related to your lesson)

    Hugs and Health,

  4. Haha, Antonio, well done! That’s what I call a ‘practical approach’.

    I’m ok…today, waiting for results, and coping with piles of backlog…I used to keep me up to date but not anymore 😉

    More hugs (but not that much health, unless you send it back again)
