We usually use the adjective 'expensive' to say that something costs a lot of money. We can also use other adjectives with the same meaning.
In this lesson, you will learn how to use 6 different adjectives that can replace the word 'expensive', which can make you sound like a better English speaker.
Let's look at the example sentences below.
HIGH (meaning: too expensive and not worth the price)
We use 'high' to talk about a rent, fee, price, tax, etc.
Note: We can also use high to talk wage, salary, pay, income.
PRICEY (informal) (meaning: expensive)
We use 'pricey' when something costs more than we want to pay for it.
OVERPRICED (meaning: too expensive and not worth the price)
Something that is overpriced is more expensive than it should be.
COSTLY (meaning: costing a lot of money)
When you say that something is costly, you mean that the price is more than you want to pay.
EXORBITANT (meaning: much too expensive; much more than is reasonable)
We use 'exorbitant' to talk about an amount of money that is much higher than it should be.
ASTRONOMICAL (meaning: extremely high)
We use 'astronomical' to talk about prices, costs, rates, and fees that are extremely high.

In this lesson, we are going to focus on six types of holiday and the activities you can do when you choose each one of them.
You are going to learn how to describe the type of holiday you like.
This knowledge is especially important when you want to talk about your holiday and what you did.
There are different types of holidays. A lot of people choose a tourist destination first instead of thinking about the type of trip they are actually looking for.
A BEACH HOLIDAY (A SEASIDE HOLIDAY)
A CITY BREAK
A city beak is a short holiday or weekend break spent in a city.
* When you go on a city break, you can try a hop-on hop-off tour to do some sightseeing.
A SKIING HOLIDAY
AN ACTIVITY (AN ADVENTURE HOLIDAY)
Some people may want to go on an activity or adventure holiday.
A CAMPING HOLIDAY
Camping can be lots of fun. It's the perfect type of holiday for those who enjoy sleeping outdoors and getting away from the daily routine.
