Worthwhile vs. Worth Doing vs. Worthy - Build Your Vocabulary

podcast vocabulary Sep 29, 2021

The other day one of my students asked me about the difference between worthwhile, worth doing, and worthy. That’s a great question because all of these are base on worth, which has a nuance of benefit or value. In this lesson, I'm going to show you how you can use these three words in your everyday English conversations and writing. Let's check it out!

Here are some of the example sentences. To get the rest and the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or get the transcript for the details.

Remember! The transcript package includes all of the Episodes, including this one.

  • If you come to New York City, going To The Top Of The Rock is totally worthwhile. There’s a great view of the city from up there.
  • If you study hard in high school it’s worthwhile, because doing so will help you get into a good college.
  • If you’re going to donate your money, you might as well donate it to a worthwhile charity, like Charity: Water.
