    A fool and his money....

    I will save more of my money to speak more than three languages next year. I believe the idioms that it says : A fool and his money are soon parted.
    is it right to use it?Can I use it in my class like this?

    Re: A fool and his money....

    "A fool and his money are soon parted" means that someone who doesn't manage his money wisely will end up without any money very quickly. They will spend their money on unnecessary things, or on business scams, and will end up penniless.

    I know that. I'm just looking for someone that he or she tell me about my sentence. Is it right or wrong?

    Yes, it is fine that way. However, I don't understand how the first sentence goes with the rest of them.

    Remember to space after (but not before):
    periods
    question marks
    exclamation marks
    commas
    colons
    semicolons

    Thanks a lot
    I know it's wrong to make a space like that. Even in Arabic. But I do it as a beautiful decoration.

    "A fool and his money are soon parted" is like this:

    When an experienced man with no money meets an unexperienced man with money. The experienced man will get the money and the man with the money will get some experience.

    Thanks a lot. I know what does it mean. But I'd liked to know how to use it in my speaking. That is all.

    I think you would simply quote it, like you tell this story.

    "When an experienced man with no money meets an unexperienced man with money. The experienced man will get the money and the man with the money will get some experience."

    and say: "You see, a fool and his money are easily parted."


    Well, that's all I could think of.


    Perhaps, the natives knows more about this subject.
