We us the phrase ‘used to’ to talk about a past habit or state. We use an infinitive after ‘used to’. For example: Dr Ma used to work in a hospital. (but he doesn’t work in a hospital now). She used to be blind (but she is not blind now).
used to+ do “过去常常”表示过去习惯性的动作或状 态，但如今已不存在。 Eg. Mary used to take a walk. 玛丽过去常常散步。

B be used to
‘Be used to’ has a different meaning from ‘used to’. We often use ‘be used to’ to talk about something we have done regularly for a long time. We put it before a noun (phrase) or an ‘ing’ form a verb. For example:
Dr Ma is used to working on the ORBIS plane.
Dr Ma is used to his new job as an ORBIS doctor.
be used to+ doing “对...已感到习惯，或习惯于” to 是介 词，后需加名次活动名词。 Eg. She is used to taking a walk. 她现在习惯于散步。
