In addition to Carole_A's answer...


Explanation:
I would like to point out that the English "used to" construction is rendered by the imperfect tense in French.

- Quand j'avais 4 ans, je regardais les dessins animés.
- A l'age de 4 ans, ....


Carole_A made the slight and natural improvement in her version, in adding the verb "aimer". Sounds better, even though strictly speaking it translates back as "used to like watching....".

Just plain French. I am a native French, but my PC seems to have lost the "accents". Sorry!
