안녕하세요 English with Yoo! 의 Jennifer Yoo입니다. English with Yoo! 는 일상생활에서 자주 쓰이는 다양한 표현들을 익히는 시간입니다. I’ll give you a daily introduction to some meaningful and useful everyday English words and phrases! So let’s get started today!

오늘의 영어 표현은: Weather the storm

I remember reading about a massive flood sweeping through North Korea before. Many lives were taken and hundreds of people were left homeless right? 북한에서 예전에 큰물(홍수)로 큰 피해를 입었다는 뉴스를 본 기억이 나는데요, 당시 수많은 사람들이 목숨을 잃고 수백명이 집을 잃었었죠.

Well, America too had a large storm come through the East Coast. There were floods, power outages, building and homes were destroyed and of course, many people were left homeless.

Even though it was an unfortunate and difficult situation이번 허리케인으로 많은 사람들이 피해를 봤지만I’m sure America will be able to weather the storm곧 어려움을 극복하고 이겨낼 것이라고 확신합니다. 비록 시간은 걸리겠지만요.

Well luckily, I met a couple of people who were fortunate enough to weather the storm.

Then let’s listen to what Tim and Susanne had to say.

오늘의 영어 표현은 weather the storm 입니다? Listen carefully!

Weather the storm

Tim: I was able to weather the storm ok. I was kind of worried because I live in a dorm. We weren’t sure if we were going to evacuate because we heard rumors but everything turned out to be fine because the power didn’t go out and we had school the next day.
Suzanne: Yes, we weather the stormed great. We were in Falls Church Virginia so we never lost power. We were a little bit worried being away from home in Indiana but we weathered it just fine.

팀은 ‘I was able to weather the storm ok, 폭풍을 잘 견뎌냈어요. 학교 기숙사에서 사는데, 기숙사에서 다 나가야 한다는 말이 있어서 걱정도되고 불안하기도 했죠. 그런데 다행히 전기도 안나가고 다 괜찮아서 다음날 수업도 정상대로 진행됐죠. 라고 말했습니다.

그리고 수잰도 ‘Yes, we weathered the storm great.’ 폭풍을 잘 견뎌냈다고 하네요.


오늘의 영어 표현은: Weather the storm 입니다.

Weather / W E A T H E R / weather는 ‘날씨’라는 뜻이고

Storm / S T O R M / storm은 ‘폭풍’이라는 뜻입니다.

말그대로 하면 ‘weather the storm’ 폭풍우를 견뎌내다, 폭풍우를 뜷고 나오다 라는 말인데요, 즉 ‘어려운 고비를 넘다 / 어려운 상황을 극복하다 / (~) 견뎌내다’ 라는 뜻입니다.
To weather the storm means to be all right despite experiencing serious problems or great difficulties.

그럼 대화를 다시 들어보겠습니다. Let’s listen to the conversation again.
