For Life

Here's a wonderfully useful word for all of our generous WordMaster readers!

Today's Lesson
TREAT (v, n)   おごる、おごり


  • If you treat someone to dinner, a movie, or a day at an amusement park, you pay for them.

    In this case, you can also say that the dinner, the movie, or the day at the amusement park is your treat.
  • treat  は、誰かの食事代、映画代、遊園地の入園料などを払ってあげる、つまり、おごる、という意味です。

    treat  を名詞として使って、食事代などについて、It's my treat.(私のおごりです) と言うこともできます。


  1. Hiro treated me to dinner at Chez Pierre for my birthday.
  2. (to a co-worker)
    I'll make you a deal. If you finish this report for me, I'll treat you to a movie and drinks tonight.
  3. (handing money to a friend after a meal at a restaurant)
    a: Here's ten dollars for my half of the bill.
    b: No, this was my treat.
