Worth x Value: Qual a diferença?

Hi People,
I am an old frequenter of this forum, But I never had posted before, its because all of my doubts always were answered by others posts, but today I mustered up courage and will post my first written doubt, lets go.

I'm in a terrible doubt, I don't known what is correct, the usage of Value or Worth according the phrases below. If you could help me, I'd be very satisfying.

Follow:

The value/worth of this present is too much expensive!

I was calculating the estimated worth/value.

We have to give more worth/value to the people that we like!

Do you give worth/value to the people that love you?

Advanced Thanks for you attention!

Olá Imee4fun,

Algumas correções:

The value of this present is very high.

I was calculating the estimated value.

You have to value more the people that you like!

Do you value the people that love you?

"In that respect I value more the people I beat rather than the time".(BBC)

==>Obervações:

Eu não usaria "worth" nos contextos apresentados,e a construção "give value" seria mais adequadamente substituída pelo verbo "value".Valores não costumam ser tratados como caros(expensive),mas sim altos(high).Para mais contextos com "value" e "worth",recomendo os links abaixo:

Bons estudos!
