Have you been spending too much money recently? Or perhaps saving? It’s the Sunday #StudyTips and today we are teaching some common, informal ways to say: ‘I have no money”or “I have a lot of money”. Take a look the examples…
Idioms meaning a person has no money
To be broke
I can’t go to the cinema with you, I am broke.
To be strapped for cash
Could you lend me £10? I am strapped for cash.
To be skint
Sorry mate, I can’t come out – I’m skint!
Idioms meaning a person who has a lot of money
To be loaded
He works in New York. He is loaded.
To be sitting on a gold mine
Her land is valuable. She is sitting on a gold mine.
To have money to burn
Why not try to incorporate these into your language when you are out with your friends or to impress your teacher during your English lessons at Celtic? There’s no better way to learn than to practise! We like to say practice makes perfect.
