Catch Word #183 – They’re well off

Do you dream of being rich one day? If you do, this episode is for you! Andrew and Suzanne explain two phrases you can use to talk about being wealthy: to make six figures and well off. After all, while money might not buy happiness, almost everyone would be happy about making more money!

Fun facts

Anyone living in Canada who makes six figures, or between $100,000 and $999,999 per year, is in the richest top 0.2% of the world’s population. This means that they make, at minimum, 59 times the average global income!

Expressions you’ll learn in this episode

  • To hit the sack/the hay
  • Sitting pretty
  • To make six figures
  • Well off
  • To get to the point
