The Last of Us Episode 04 | Not All Are Immune

Language Tip

“Tommy used to run with the Fireflies”

So we’re going to talk about things we used to do in this episode. In the example we have from the episode, we know that Tommy used to run with the Fireflies, but what does that mean? Is he still with them? Do we know that?

Well, when we use “used to” we know for sure that this is not the case anymore, so in the episode we know that Tommy is not with the Fireflies anymore, and that’s why we said that he used to run with them.

If we don’t know whether he’s still with them or not, we wouldn’t use “used to” but we would simply use the past. We would say something like that, “Tommy ran with the Fireflies(, and he may still be with them…)”

So when you want to talk about things you did in the past but not anymore, you can use this very useful expression.

e.g.

I used to play soccer when I was younger. (I don’t anymore)

She used to be in the figure skating team. (She’s not anymore)

So, that’s a new tip for you to learn from this episode, and now let’s see if you were watching carefully what happened in the episode.
