     中国用花钱如流水这句话来形容一个人挥霍无度的样子,那么,乱花钱用英语该怎么说呢?今天要和大家分享的口语表达是:blow one's money,这里的blow可不是刮风的意思,而是to spend money freely(花钱无节制),所以不难理解blow one's money是乱花钱的意思。

 

     但是换个角度想,许欢欢老师觉得用blow这个单词简直太形象了!你看啊,我们常说花钱如流水,虽然blow没有流水的意思,但是blow给人感觉就是钱被风一吹,什么都没有了,岂不是比流水更快。

例句:

· Don't blow your money on something useless.

· 不要在没用的东西上乱花钱。

 

· Can you spot me some cash? I blew all my money last night.

· 你能借我点钱吗?我昨天晚上都给挥霍没了。

 

blow one's money意思相同的表达还有spend money like water(挥金如土)和have money to burn(烧钱,胡乱花钱,挥霍)

例句:

· He spends money like water.

· 他挥金如土。

 

· I don't know what she does but she seems to have money to burn.

· 我不知道她做什么的, 但她看起来貌似挥金如土。
