1. Find words and expressions in bold in exercise 5 (lesson 16). Make up one sentence with each word.

2. Listen to the dialogue and answer the questions given below.

Daniel: So what were you like as a child?

Luisa: When I was a child, I was kind of rebellious.

Daniel: You? Really? What was the turning point?

Luisa: When I graduated from senior school.

Daniel: What do you mean?

Luisa: Until you graduate, you don’t understand that life is just to begin. After I finished the ninth form, I realized that I still had a lot to learn.

Daniel: I know what you mean. I was really immature when I was a child.

Luisa: What changed?

Daniel: I think I became more mature after I got my first job. Once you have a job, you learn to be more independent.

Luisa: That’s true. Where did you work?

Daniel: In my father’s bank.

Luisa: Another turning point for me was when I got my dog, Pepper. I know that sounds silly, but it was really important to me.

Daniel: Why was that so important?

Luisa: Well, I was eleven. I remember that having a dog made me feel really responsible. Pepper would follow me everywhere and was always waiting for me when I came home from school.

Daniel: Actually, that sounds nice. I never had a dog, but I remember when I got my first bicycle. That was a very important day for me. For the first time, I could go out on my own and go as far as I wanted to. I used to polish the bicycle every day and take really good care of it. Of course, that only lasted a few months, and then I lost interest in it!

Would / Used to

Used to and would are both used to describe something that happened regularly in the past but doesn’t happen any longer. However, if something happened only once we can’t use used to or would - we must use the Past Simple.

There are also important differences between used to and would. Would is not used with stative verbs such as love,be,understand, and feel.


When I was a student,I used to love sleeping late on the weekends. (But: When I was a student, I would love sleeping late on weekends.)

Would is slightly more formal, more ‘bookish’ and can convey the idea that the speaker is reminiscing about the past. It is often used in writing to talk about the past in a misty-eyed, sentimental way.


People would get very angry when the tax-collector came to town. In those days people would draw water from the village well.

When I was a child I would wake up to the sound of birds singing.
