Translation:You used to drink.
The only reason there is any equivalence in those is because there is an understanding that you don't go to school anymore, not because of anything grammatical. "I used to go to the off-licence" has a completely different meaning to "I would go to the off-licence". Not saying you're wrong, since you explicitly say "can have the same meaning", but not a very helpful answer to the question regardless. Ultimately, this example highlights a significant difference between the two languages.
