Using "Spend" Correctly

"Spend" is a verb that we use to talk about how we use or consume our time or money. Here are some examples to help you understand how to use it correctly:

Spend + time: "I spent all day at the beach yesterday."
Spend + money: "She spent $100 on clothes at the mall."
Spend + infinitive verb: "He spent hours studying for his exam."
Remember that "spend" is always followed by a direct object, which is either a noun or a pronoun. In the examples above, "all day," "$100," and "hours" are the direct objects. Additionally, when talking about how much money we spend, we usually use "on" to show what we spent our money on, like in the example "She spent $100 on clothes at the mall."
