오늘의 표현 2

EiK Podcast 56 (오늘의 표현 2)

최근에 제 트위터를 통해서 배포한 표현 10 개를 묶어서 올립니다.

평상시에 휴대폰으로나 이메일을 통해서 하루에 하나씩 이런 표현 연습을 받고 싶으면 @EnglishinKorean에 가셔서 팔로잉하시면 됩니다.

1. ‘I was completely flabbergasted by what she said’; ‘I was completely taken aback by what she said’: 그 여자가 한 말은 완전 어이없었어요.

2. 눈치없는:tactless(상황에 안 맞는 말 하고 센스 없을 때)He can’t take a hint (눈치 잘 못 챌 때)I tried to tell him we want to be alone but he won’t take the hint

3. ‘We have our work cut out for us’: 애먹겠다. (예:우리 부서에 새로 들어온 인턴은 경력 전혀 없는데 내가 훈련시켜야 한다면..) I really have my work cut out for me라고 하시면 됩니다.

4. ‘혹시’라는 의미로 ‘happen to’와 ‘by chance’라고 씁니다. ‘Do you happen to have plans to visit London any time soon?’라고 하시면 됩니다.

5.  Go on a rant: 비판을 늘어놓다. 예문: He went on a rant about the exorbitant (터무니 없는) cost of medical care in the US.

8.  ‘열대야’는 ‘tropical nights phenomenon’이지만 일반적인 말은 아니므로 그냥 ‘stifling nights’라고 하시면 됩니다.예문 Summer nights in Korea can be stifling

9. Finicky eater: 입맛이 까다로운 사람. 예문: It’s a hassle(성가신 일) trying to eat with my dad because he’s a real finicky eater.

10. To keep one’s distance: 거리를 두다. 예문: It’s not a good idea to get too close to your underlings(부하직원) at work. Always keep your distance.
