[English with Yoo] To chip in


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: to chip in 입니다.

There is a saying that blood is thicker than water. I was telling Ebony that families stick with one another and help in rough times. 피는 물보다 진하다는 말이 있듯이, 가족은 늘 우리 곁에서 힘과 도움이 되주는데요, Ebony도 요즘 경제적으로 어려움을 겪고 있지만, 언니, 오빠들의 도움으로 큰 힘을 얻고 있다고 말했습니다. Ebony was going through some tough times financially but her siblings got together and chipped in and helped her out.

오늘의 영어 표현, To chip in인데요, 그럼 먼저 제가 Ebony 와 함께 나눈 대화를 들어보시겠습니다.

To chip in
Jen: Family…family comes first than anything.
Ebony: I always remember that.
Jen: I spoil my baby sister. Are you the oldest?
Ebony: I’m the baby. There are twelve of us.
Jen: You’re the baby! So you get all the attention and you get all the special perks here and there.
Ebony: I was with my sisters today and they found out that I was a little low on my rent so all of them chipped in and I paid the rent off.
Jen: Aww! They chipped in and paid the rent for you?
Ebony: Yeah!

Ebony는 12남매중 막내여서 그런지 늘 언니, 오빠들의 사랑과 관심을 받았다고 합니다. 그런데 최근 she found out that she was a little low on her rent, 경제적으로 많이 힘들어서 집세를 내는데 어려움을 겪고 있다고 했는데요, 이 소식을 들은 언니 오빠들이, they chipped in and paid the rent off 했다고 하네요.

오늘의 영어 표현 to chip in 인데요, to chip in (something) means to contribute money for a gift for someone; to pay for part of something with other people. To chip in은 누구누구를 위해 각자 얼마씩 모아서 주다는 뜻입니다.

그래서I was a little low on my rent so all of them chipped in 하면 집세를 낼 돈이 충분치 않았는데, 언니 오빠들이 돈을 조금씩 내줘서 집세를 다 낼 수 있었다는 말이죠.
To chip in, ‘~(누구누구)를 위해 돈을 조금씩 내주다’ 라는 뜻 있다는 것 기억해두시고요, 그럼 여기서 오늘의 대화를 다시 한번 들어보시겠습니다.
