He was quick to adapt himself to the new system.

= He was quick to adapt himself (into) the new system.

Can I use "into" instead of "to"?

  • It depends entirely on what you're trying to express. There is no problem using into. However, using it will change the meaning of the sentence. – Jason Bassford Supports Monica Jan 17 '19 at 17:44

Unlikely that would improve the sentence, because adaptation here is about self-adjustment to the system rather than 'getting installed' into it.
