Worth it

The American Heritage Dictionary defines worth as a noun which means: 1.The quality that renders something desirable, useful, or valuable: the worth of higher education. 2. Material or market value: stocks having a worth of ten million dollars. It's also an adjective used to describe the value of something: this book is worth a lot of money!

We have some important expression with worth. We say that something is worth the trouble or worth the effort. The shortest way to say this is "it's worth it" or "it's not worth it."

It's worth practicing these expressions a little bit, because sometimes expressions which repeat words like "it" are difficult to remember, and they may sound strange to you at first. But it's worth the effort!
