    Re: word

    Hi there,
    Thanks a lot.
    Could you make a sentence using 'crash'? By the way, is 'crash' a slang in this case?

    thanks

    Yes, people can "rush" a bank.

    I was joking about the word "crash." Sorry -

    People can rush a bank
    People can rush in a bank.

    Is the second sentence fine? Is there any difference between them?

    Many thanks

    Re: word

    A "bank rush" is when people take their money out of the bank. It can cause problems, since the bank does not always have the cash on hand to pay out all deposits at one time.

    The housing problem caused a bank rush last week.

    bank rush is a noun.

    _________________________________-

    rushing into a bank is to enter a bank building or to travel or move in a hurry.

    He rushed to the bank before work so he could get money for lunch.
    Will you rush to the store for me?
    I don't want to rush my meal.

    This rush is used as a verb.

    ____________________

    He was in such a rush, he forgot his keys.
    Don't be in such a rush to finish your school.

    This rush is used as a noun to describe a hurried movement.
