    I wasted a lot of time playing the computer games last night.

    = Playing the computer games wasted me a lot of time last night.

    在美加所用的英文裡 多用 Spend 來表示時間的浪費

    所以你這句話 如改成這樣 會更順哦

    I spent a lot of time playing games on the computer last night.

    = Playing games on the computer made me spend so much time last night.

    I waste much money buying the bag.

    =Buying the bag wastes me much money

    這句話非常不順口

    英文最重要的就是順口 尤其是口語方面

    如改成下列例句 則會更好

    I wasted so much money on that bag.

    I wasted so much money to buy the bag.

    = Buying the bag had made me waste so much money.

    Hope this helps!! :)
