“Kif is a person who often looses stuff. Sometimes he buys something and he looses it on the very next day. He needs to buy it again. What does it lead to?”

Grammar: we often use  to express that we got something to a bad state or condition,such as 弄坏 <nòng huài> [to brake sth., to mess sth. up]



<Tā chángcháng děi jiè péngyǒu de qián, yīnwèi tā zìjǐ de qián zǒng shì bùgòu.>

[He_often_modal verb must_borrow_friend_de_money, because_his_own_money_not_enough.] 


问题是他的朋友现在不接他的电话, 好像怕他又要借他们的钱。

[Problem_to be_his_friends_now_not_answer_his_call, (it) seems_to be affraid_he_again_want to_borrow_their_money.]
