Well it's finally happened
I'm so amazing that I'm finally sponsored by Lingoda
Who are Lingoda? I'm glad you asked

and because I'm so amazing, they're not only paying me millions of pounds

I have all this money now
What should I do with it?
A million pounds, what are my options?
When you give money to that charity or any good cause
You donate money
The preposition with "donate" is "to"
So for me I could donate money to charity
Yes! I will donate five hundred thousand pounds to charity, because I am great
I've always wanted to join Wall Street and do stock trading! Yeah!
I could invest
With this, we use the preposition "in"
Maybe I should invest in Tesla
They're doing quite well at the moment or perhaps Bitcoin I hear good things
Wow just with so much money to spend
"Spend"! That's a good word! It means to use your money to buy goods or services to spend
"To spend" we use the preposition "on"
Spend time ON Spend money ON
I will spend lots of money on the cat
she needs new shoes
Okay what else? what else? what else? what can I do?
I know! For my mother... she needs a new car!
When I spend money on a product, I use the verb "buy"
The preposition with "buy" is "for"
So I will buy a car FOR my mum
But if that money is not for a product but for a service
Then I pay for it, I don't buy it, for example
A great idea!
I will pay for a holiday for the cat!
I'm taking you to Egypt Lily! You're a god there!
But how can I pay for goods and products?
Well I could use...
Well if I'm talking about the METHOD of payment I can use these prepositions
Now be careful! You pay BY card or
Never IN card
You could however say BY cash
Maybe one day I will want to buy a boat for myself
So maybe I should keep some money
When we keep money in order to use it in the future
We say "Save"
But! When we're talking about the object we would like to buy in the future
Then we use these prepositions...
"UP FOR" when we have the object
I should save UP FOR a boat
But also, my friend needs help
Her bank account is in the negative
When your bank account is in the negative, or "in the red"
We can say that you ARE
IN your overdraft. Or you ARE overdrawn
Be careful of the pronunciation: "Overdrawn"
Any money which you "owe" - Which you need to pay back to someone or some organisation
It's a "debt"
Be careful of the pronunciation the B is silent
And for this the preposition is "IN"
With the verb "BE"
"To be in debt" so we could say
"My friend is in her overdraft"
"She is overdrawn"
And "She is in debt"
Another possible verb is "have"
To have debt, she also has debt. My poor friend!
Well maybe I can help
Yes! I will pay those debts!
Now when you pay debts you use the preposition "OFF"
So a full sentence...
"Don't worry, I will pay off your debts"
Or another thing you could do with a mi-
Sorry, just one second I'm getting a call
From Lingoda, of course
Probably offering me more millions
Hello! Yes I am great thank you!
I forgot to ask you, these 1 million "thank yous"
When should I expect to receive those in my bank account?
The million pounds?
You actually meant "a million thank yous"?
How am I supposed to pay my rent with a million thank yous
Lingoda are paying me in thank yous, not pounds
I bought a car and everything
If you had a million pounds, how would you use it?
What would you spend it on?
What would you buy? For who?
What would you pay FOR?
What would you pay OFF? Any debts?
