Q: Qual é a diferença entre used to e would ?
A: In past tense, they are used the same. "I used to go there every day when I was younger." "I would go there every day when I was younger." They are the same.

Such as: what you did ("i would go over there every day when I was younger"), what you're willing to do("I would eat that if I had to"), what you imagine as being realistic ("that would happen" or "that wouldn't happen"). there are many more examples and uses for "would". It is a much more varied word.

but "used to" is a simple word, it only refers to the past. something that happened in the past and no longer happens any more.
