WORTH-4: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today we finish our review of expressions in English with the word worth. Today we look at a very common expression.

Today's expression is: to be worth your while

Meaning: interesting or useful for somebody to do.

Example 1:
Janet. I promise. It will be worth your while to come to the meeting. I hope to see you there!

Example 2:
I'll accept the job if you make it worth my while.

In conversation the most common way to express this is to use to be worth it (or not).

Example 3:
Janet: I don't know if I want to go to the meeting. I don't think it's going to be worth it.

Remember that tomorrow we will send the Essential Weekly Vitamin for Spanish-speaking students of English.

Have a great day!
